World War II Wellington Point, Anniversary

50th Anniversary of the End of World War II During 1939 - 1945 both American & Australian troops camped on the reserve. The larger houses on the headland above the reserve were commandeered for officer quarters for the Americans. Anti-aircraft guns and searchlights were also positioned in this area. The US Navy estabished an Anti-Aircraft (A-A) Gunnery School around June 1943, 17 huts were built on the reserve and gun pits were built along the north east shoreline with the camp consisting of about 1500 men.
