JAPANESE OIL DRUMS FOUND IN BLUE MUD BAY
DURING WW2

 

The Nackeroos (North Australian Observer Unit) operated out of Roper River during 1942/43 with Aboriginal Guides and Helpers. One of their patrols found Japanese Oil drums near Blue Mud Bay on the Arnhem Land Gulf Coast (western side of the Gulf of Carpentaria). Several Nackeroos are still alive and often visit Headquarters of Norforce, Darwin.
