Me and a couple of the local guys (Jack/Fort Adams, and Scott/NWC) thought we'd get a jump start on the upcoming CDSG workday. We found "this" nestled in the poison ivy grove behind Battery Bankhead. Any guesses as to what "this" is?

It could have been part of a dolly used to move ammo from one point to another. Obviously it's missing more pieces to it. When I see old photo's of dolly's moving ammo, the wheels are similar. Did you check the immediate area for similar item that could attatch to it?. As heavy as those were, it may not be that far.

We think its something like what is shown in this picture below...special thanks to ArmyJunk. We tugged on it the other day and 1 wheel spins freely on the axle. Other side is stuck. Maybe a couple of hard knocks will free it up. We plan to move it inside and secure it.
