    If you walk along the shore line you will probably be able to pick up ww2 era items as alot of it is still getting washed up

    Well errrrrr no ! Had a lovely day with the soon to be mrs h the detecting took second fiddle had an hour or so but all I found was crap ! Awesome place tho and glad to say I have made the long trip down there to pay my respects. It puts it all into perspective when you stand there in a place of such outstanding natural beauty to think of the horrors that went on there nearly 70 years ago
