The nautical distance measurement of a “cable” is 240 yards. Thus, 4 cables would be 480 yards.

The additional information furnished by David regarding cable length is open to debate (depending which Navy arm you belong to) - what I would question is the arithmetic.
Whatever the result - it was still a pretty close observation point!

Famous WW2 Quote
"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
