It is made of concrete that is reinforced with wire mesh and has an elephant iron lining in the inside. The front entrance has steps that lead down to the entrance and the front wall is one foot thick. The rear wall, facing the German lines, is three feet thick. The exterior walls have sandbag impressions and these were used to form the framework of the bunker and provided extra thickness.

It is likely, given its location to the nearby cemetery and on the light railway network at the junction known as C2, this connected the front line with the spur at Zillebeke Lake Sidings, that the bunker was used as a reception point for wounded brought by light railway to the Advanced Dressing Station at Transport Farm.
