Assigned to the Japanese Army. Transported to New Guinea and emplaced at Madang.
Mounted in a concrete square block south of Madang off on Coronation Drive south of the Coastwatchers
Memorial. The gun is
mounted atop a square concrete block facing
eastward overlooking Astrolabe Bay.
Lori Witham adds:
"There was a violent storm
around 2000, and the coral wall broke apart so that the concrete slab
is now crooked and looking like it's going to fall into the
ocean, but the gun is still firmly on top of the slab. The constant
salt spray has rusted the gun."
