Rare WW2 Australian Training Ground .

Recommended Posts

Hi All :


Just thought I'd add these Pictures of a WW2 Australian Army Training Area .


Situated in Light Scrub : The area which is quite large is full of Trench works , Fox Holes , Gun Pits , Barbed wire Entanglements etc :


The 2 Pictures show ; Grenade Training Pit with Blast Walls & Firing Range Concrete Butts .


There are Lots of stuff lying around on the Ground .


Such as Grenade Base Plugs / Levers , Motar Bombs , Piat Bombs , Spent 303 Shell Cases , Metal Ammunition Boxes .


All of which is quite Ammazing after 70 years to still be there !


Cheers .


Dom .

Hi Barry :

This area is about a 2 hour drive from Melbourne :


I can not give the precise location , as the sight has not been properly documented or any of the dangerous ordanance removed yet . :)

I'm still in the process of doing that , although that will now go on hold over the winter months .
