Wartime History
Reportedly emplaced near Awar Airfield.

Recovery & Display
One of two guns brought to Bogia in 1975 for PNG independence, to be displayed at the district government station. Today, it is displayed outside the Koale Trading company.

According to locals:
"One time a Japanese veteran came to Bogia, and looked at the gun, he got very excited, and pointed to the '2582' [serial number] and said 'my gun'. He was very happy to see it."
