PLUTO pump display

World War II pump that has returned home having been housed here in the old fort to pump fuel under the English Channel ('Pipe Line Under The Ocean') to the D-Day invasion at Cherbourg. Remarkably this pump was still in commercial use up to the early 1990's, and has now been restored.
