ANTI-AIRCRAFT GUN SITE
NEAR 505 LYTTON ROAD, COLMSLIE
The Colmslie Heavy Anti-aircraft gun site at Colmslie in Brisbane, Queensland was decommissioned in August 1942 due to concerns with the closeness of the guns to the three RAN Naval Fuel tanks and the fact that too many of the heavy gun sites were too close to the city. The gun site was relocated to behind Fort Lytton. While this was being relocated, one of the mobile anti-aircraft batteries was located on the southern side of Lytton Road possibly in approximately the position of today's 505 Lytton Road. This location is by no means confirmed. Can anyone assist with a more accurate location?
I'd like to thank Russell Miller and David Spethman for their assistance with this web page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
