Default Spent Rounds Oahu Hawaii

Put together a few shadow boxes with some spent rounds I found while stationed Hawaii. I think the toy plane was one of my favorite finds.

Actually I love the bent FMJ's, never never seen those. Any ideas wether these relics were from 12/7/41? Those bent bullets hit something I would guess at an angle. And thinking you probably were not detecting a firing range so that's why I ask.

We were there a couple times and the first time stayed a week on Ford Island. Other than the history believe it or not I didn't care for it too much. It was like half tropical paradise and half third world country.

I was stationed there with the Navy. Found these around different beaches. I did see a showcase on Bellows that had some of the same rounds and they where from 1941.

Wish I had a detector when I was stationed in Spain back in the 80's. Was there for 3 years and would travel the country side never thought of detecting back then.
