Harbor defense regiments were formed in the Coast Artillery Corps from SEP companies in 1924. The distinctive insignia of these regiments and station of the regimental headquarters in 1939 are shown on the signs of this battery. The regiments were broken up in 1944 but the 1st through 7th and 59th exist today as air defense artillery regiments. This is a typical seacoast gun battery of the period 1892 to 1946.
