WW2 Relic & Coin Hunt: “The Two-Up Tent” Australian Casualty Clearing Station.

We make our 2nd visit the site of a 1944 Australian Army Casualty Clearing Station (CCS) in remote Northern Queensland. This was Australia’s ‘Front Line’ during the New Guinea campaigns. The CCS was deployed to treat casualties from Merauke in New Guinea, R.A.A.F. aircrew injured in operational sorties from the nearby forward airstrip, and any personnel injured during Japanese air raids. During this hunt we find our first ever ‘Two-up’ tossing coin and a large number of silver and bronze coins dropped during the excitement of the betting on this traditional Aussie Digger’s game. Thanks for watching and please take the time to visit our site www.nqexplorers.com. Happy Hunting everyone!
