GREY POINT FORT WW1 COASTAL DEFENCE BATTERY GREY POINT FORT AMATEUR RADIO SOCIETY - Helen’s Bay Crawfordsburn 2008 When Grey Point Fort closed, the guns and all ancillary equipment were removed and sold for scrap,so for many years there were no guns in Grey  Point Fort Battery. only a ring of bolts showed where these magnificent guns had been.  Two guns of exactly the same type were traced in the Irish Republic, one from Spike Island and the other from Fort Davis in County Cork.  These two guns were donated to Grey Point Fort by the Irish Government, they were transported from Spike Island in County Cork by road transport  and the first gun was installed in 1993, the second gun was installed in 1999, when the mounting for both guns were swung over the existing ring of  bolts at Grey Point Fort, they fitted perfectly. Over the past three years Grey Point Fort Amateur Radio Society volunteers have created a fascinating museum of  military memorabilia, including medals,uniforms, photographs and weaponry from the first and second world wars and  other conflicts around the world at that time, there is also a section devoted to the Titanic.  As well as the military museum, volunteers have also created a unique collection of radio equipment  used in World War II,  a bletchley receiver, and other electronic equipment.
