This spot isn't on the DB Map and I'd like to contribute it/add it, but I'm not sure how.
Firstly, some historical information: Fort Oxford (active 1944-1953) was a long-range counter-bombardment coastal gun battery situated 4 miles north-west of the entrance to Sydney Harbor, Cape Breton County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Originally to be built at Oxford Point, but moved to a more defensible location to the west before construction began, about 1/3 mile inland of the coast between Merritt Head and Bonar Point. Last deactivated in 1953. Also referred to as Oxford Battery in some documents.
