Wartime History
One of two guns, emplaced furthest to the west at Kangu Beach, on southern Bougainville.

Today
The gun still remains to this day.

Stephen Turner visited in 1985:
"The projectiles were still stacked adjacent to the gun, but all of the brass casings had been removed and taken for scrap earlier."
