Wartime History
Abandoned at Sanananda Point.

Remains of at least five barges are present along the old coastline of Sanananda (the 1951 eruption of Mount Lamington extended the coast). They remained relativily intact into the early 1970s.

Today, not much remains of most of them, covered over with sand and heavily rusted. Only rusted remains are visible in the water at low tides. Several pieces, armor plating and ramp wheel are displayed in Girewo village.
