Geocache Description:


A Nation's Defense


Welcome to another Blacklegend Cache hide
I have wanted to put a cache here for a while, but needed to do a bit of fact finding on the type of Anti Aircraft guns at this location. They are in great condition, but fenced off. Look but don't touch unfortunately. Have a look at the pics below...




The larger gun is a QF 3.7 inch anti aircraft gun. In WW2 they were one of Australia's and Britan's primary anti aircraft defense weapons. Rather than repeat the information, if you want some further reading, visit the link below...

The smaller of the guns from what i can tell is a 40mm Bofor's Anti Aircraft gun. More information can be found at the link below.

This link is also interesting as well. Shows a list of Anti Aircraft battery placements around Australia.

For the cache, the cache is a camo'd eclipse tin placed away from the guns. It can be accessed from above or below, but if you don't want muggle traffic, access the cache from below.


As always with caches near water (the Murray is just over the levy bank), and in the case of this cache, vehicle traffic as well, BE CAREFULL WITH THE KIDDIES. Other than than, have fun.
