Arrsers self taken photo collection.

Thought I lost these, just found them again on one of my old HDD's.

The Lithgow Arms Factory in NSW Australia has been making weapons since 1912 and still going. They had a rail line for shipping the weapons (Now disused) and two anti-aircraft batteries protecting them during WW2.

I took these photos of the Lithgow Heavy Anti Aircraft Gun Stations Battery A

If you've got any more, you should post those in the Modeling thread. Really interesting those.

Don't have any more of A Battery. I've got a few photos from the exhibits in the Arms Museum itself, B Battery (no artillery, bunkers are falling apart) and the old Lithgow airstrip.

Location and many photos taken by people online if anyone is interested.

Google Maps

EDIT: Type of artillery shown in photo

QF 3.7-inch AA gun - Wikipedia

Didn’t know there was so many versions of the Owen machine gun.
On the Styers second up the short one, that a AFV carbine version.
