During the 1960's and 1970's students who attended Camp Hill High School which was located within the White's Hill Primary school would play in White's Hill bushland. They knew of the American Base on the hill but believed it to be an storage area for American supplies. It was not uncommon for kids to come to school with old rusted American equipment including several Thompson sub-machine guns.

An Army observation point was also located on White's Hill.

A signals switchboard room "bunker"  for Signals Unit of Fortress Brisbane, was also located on White's Hill.
