I'm certain he did mention the lighthouse, but only I, believe,
in that they knew about the lighthouse. Pilots flying in and out
of that base probably used it as an identifier or even a turning
point for landing setups.

It is only seconds away from the field by air. For it to suddenly
become an anomaly seems way out there. It would distinguish that
area from the rest by it's flash rate.

First I don't think anyone is suggesting an 'alien" attack. This was
during the cold war and any anomaly would be of great interest;
the old saw about the enemy having new technology.
Is there not evidence to suggest that Halt made a radio report at
3:25am that very morning-not three weeks later.

In this case I'm sure the MoD did do a thorough investigation.
How could they not in light of the circumstances and Halt's
report that morning?

I can't disagree with this statement.

I searched Google looking for any mention of when that shield
might have been installed but could find nothing. But it likely
went up sometime in the 60s when people were more inclined to
take on the government rather than just live with that light
flashing in their windows every 5 seconds.

There is a move afoot to close it down since the shoreline is
