Open blast shelters were built on technical sites such as 70MU in preference to air raid shelters. Their 5 1/2 feet high and 14 inches thick brick walls and earth banks provided quick and safe protection to crouching airmen from the blast effects of enemy bombs but offered no protection from a direct hit.
