RANAD Somerton: card filled out during WWII 1943
.

A Parapunch card filled out in 1943 that appears to be details of ammunition stored at the former RANAD base. This soggy card was found lying on the ground shortly after an admin building was dismantled, and it's unlikely that explosives from 1943 would have still been stored in the base when it closed around 2000, so it had probably slipped into a cavity somewhere and had been hiding for many years.
