The possible site of a World War II searchlight platform has been reported at the end of Hanover Street, southeast of the former Queen's Hotel on Clyde Street, Helensburgh, to the east of the town. A sloping concrete platform is said to lead from the landward side to a rounded stone tower located in the sea wall, close to a ramp leading to the shore.
Examination of old maps and OS mapping predating the war shows no evidence or record of a slipway or platform at the indicated point. All lines leading across the shore from land to sea are identified only as sewer lines.
