    That is absolutely amazing. I cannot believe that they had just been sitting there like that for 70 years!

    As for the find, WOW! Not sure who captioned the pics, apparently a "news" person. PIC #7 IDs "Japanese" grenades. They look alot like Millsbombs. They may have been acquired/captured by the Japanese or were left by the Australians. A great find, regardless. At least a few families will be able to give proper burials for their long missing kin.

    Yep, I just commented on that site...what a bunch of morons posted there. Another reason to keep the gene pool shallow
    And I fully agree, they are Mills grenades, you can see the fill plug and base plug clearly. Danny
