WHITE'S HILL OBSERVATION POINT,
WHITE'S HILL, BRISBANE, QLD, DURING WW2
The Army occupied an observation point on the high part of White's Hill in Brisbane during WW2.
The Signals Unit of Fortress Brisbane, also established a signals switchboard room "bunker" on the lower slopes of White's Hill.
Students of Camp Hill High School would play in White's Hill bushland and knew of an American Base. It was not uncommon for kids to come to school with old rusted American equipment including several Thompson sub-machine guns.
Can anyone advise which unit manned this observation point?
I'd like to thank Russell Miller and David Spethman for their assistance with this web page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
