That's a great map, armyjunk2. If I'd only had it 25 years ago.... Sad It was probably available, if only I had known where to look. A lot of those trails became the roads that we knew. And I'll bet the ones that had fallen from use were still visible.

I'm very interested in learning more. Please e-mail with any information that you can share.

DennisMenace56(takethisout)@bellsouth.net I see people using the (takethisout) all the time. Guess it keeps spammers from calling?

Thanks, Dennis

Got the maps Armyjunk2. Thanks!

Looking at maps published in the '20s and '30s is like going into a time warp. Stuff marked "proposed" was the base where I lived, 60 years later. Stuff marked "existing" was the stuff that we stumbled across and marveled at, deep in jungle.

Our military maps didn't show anything there, or just said "ruins". It took the advent of the internet before I found out the true extent of all those mysterious ruins!

That looks like either an 8" gun or a 240mm Howitzer. Yes, it is a two load piece (They have a gun and recoil system on the travel carriage at Aberdeen but not the carriage) I wonder what the tires are on the transport for that? Aberdeen had a hard time finding tires the right size when they needed them. Turned out the Russians still used that size on some large vehicles. So the display at Aberdeen has Russian tires Shocked . I wonder if we can claim it is Reverse lend lease

The muzzle of the 8" has me a little baffled. Any ideas what it is?

Looks like it was used with a barrel insert for testing ammunition of some sort.

Cool
