Battery #131 had three latrines, two off the front corridor and one in the power room. The two off the corridor included a smaller officers latrine and a large one for the enlisted men. Both were gasproofed and an airlock was built between them.

Powder room

The gun #1 powder room had a set of vents to the dehumidification room, just off the power room , which helped keep the powder and shells dry. The powder room was later used to store county records, but the humidity has gotten to most of them.
