Military Relic Hunting WW2 Artillery Camp: Garrett ATPro: GTI2500.

We make a return visit (Part II) to the site of “H” Australian Heavy Battery, a Heavy Coastal Gun Emplacement comprising two 155mm guns, two Sperry searchlight positions, a Battery Command Post, Regimental Aid Post, and camp area. The unit comprised 127 Australian Army Personnel. On this outing we uncover more military relics and the first predecimal coins from the site. The emplacement was strategically located on a remote headland guarding an important harbour entrance on lower Cape York Peninsula. Although the guns were never fired in anger, the installation provided important support and protection for RAN and USN operations in the Coral Sea, and against New Guinea and Guadalcanal. Thanks for watching and please take the time to visit our site www.nqexplorers.com. Happy Hunting everyone!

  1. Thanks very much for watching Tina, really appreciate your comments – best of luck and keep up your great hunts and videos – HH!

  2. great interesting video .. good to see the old army relics coming up .. well done Warren and Mrs NQ .. thanks for sharing .. Good luck to you both & HH Tina

  3. Thanks for watching Ole, agree that more relics are hidden in the bush, when the grass has browned and dried, much easier to get around – GL and HH mate!

  4. Thanks for watching Dtd2569 – that spider is big enough to be a pet LOL, but it came out of the bushes and jumped onto MrsNQs arm – and then onto the ground! GL an HH!

  6. Thanks for watching – we are loving the AT Pro, it is a top-line relic and coin machine, and you can make it as simple or as complex as you like! GL and HH!

  7. Some interesting relic finds, the spoon was a beauty, a few coins as well. Great vid of a great place, enjoyed watching. HH mate and GL on your next hunt : )

  9. [..YouTube..] GemQ, come North mate, plenty of room for all of us LOL – but unfortunately we don’t get those really old Victorian and earlier coins that you pick up on a regular basis – we were established in the late 1870s so anything before 1860 becomes difficult to find – GL and HH mate!

  10. [..YouTube..] Thanks for watching Pete, the lost detector was serious for around 5 minutes, then there was the ‘lost camera and tripod’ incident, we couldn’t remember where we left it LOL. As you would know, you only have to be a couple of metres from something in that country and you can miss it! HH over Easter mate!

  11. [..YouTube..] Thanks for watching and commenting Mars – the spider gave Mrs NQ a real fright, but he appeared just as frightened LOL. Appreciate your input mate, best wishes and HH!

  12. [..YouTube..] Thanks for watching, the spider gave Mrs NQ a real fright LOL, but he seemed a little timid and was glad when we left him alone! The gilt buckle – was a great find and not like anything we have found in that area before. Best wishes and HH mate!

  13. [..YouTube..] G’day Ringo, thanks for watching mate, I believe that the 50 cal would have been from an Anti-Aircraft emplacement which was located up near the guns. Not quite sure how the round got where it was though! GL and HH mate!

  14. [..YouTube..] Thanks for watching Rich – the spider – remains unidentified, but he/she was not terribly agressive, so may have been harmless – but best left alone LOL. That area usually gets a bushfire each summer, so that would be the time to hunt it once the grass is burnt – though visually, it will be a bit hard on the eye LOL. Best wishes and HH mate.

  15. [..YouTube..] Thanks for taking the time to watch and comment Dave, much appreciated mate. I have added your Channel Link to my channel so any of the newbies can see how it is done. Best wishes and HH mate!

  16. [..YouTube..] Thanks for commenting Yulelah, appreciate you taking the time mate – and the detector was found after a few anxious minutes! Going to tie a flag to it LOL. HH mate!

  17. [..YouTube..] Thanks for watching Paleoman, appreciate you taking the time to comment mate, take your camera to work and film some of that railway action for us to enjoy! LOL. GL and HH mate!

  18. [..YouTube..] Thanks for watching GC, it is now autumn, but our winters are very mild – never cold as such – so the weather us usually glorious sunshine and cool evenings! HH mate.

  19. [..YouTube..] Thanks Big Bunny, appreciate your comments mate, we try to show some wildlife when we come across it (or it comes across us LOL), as like yourself, we enjoy watching hunt areas in places we haven’t been, and it is always good to have a bit of a look around to get the ‘feel’ of the hunt site. GL and HH!

  20. [..YouTube..] Thanks mate, the skinny dipping – is Part III – you need to be in the company of a responsible adult – do you know any? LOL. Big Led Zeppelin fan myself so happy to slip a bit of Jimmy Page into the intro. Appreciate your comments and insight as usual – GL and HH!

  21. AWESOME video Warren and Colleen! Congrats on the finds! Fantastic scenery and history. Best of Luck on your next hunt!

  22. [..YouTube..] Excellent video once again. I love that spot, what a fantastic place to hunt. What a monster spider that was. I bet you could put a leash on him and take him out for a stroll. Congrats to you both on the nice finds, especially the wartime coins. HH.
