REVETTED STORAGE BUILDINGS
WAKE 
Revetted storage buildings. The blast walls are of coral sand and an attempt has been made to camouflage by distortion painting on roof. Such storage units usually contain explosive or highly inflammable material.

MINGALADON 
Revetted storage huts, measuring approx. 45'x20'. The blast walls are of earth with sod cover for camouflage. This is probably an ammunition depot. The pattern of the dump is that of a normal military depot. Heavy track activity, as is present here, is often the key to the location of such dumps. An airfield is located just off the photos to the left.

KAVIENG 
(1) Twin storage sheds with dimensions 50'x25'. The buildings are heavily revetted on all sides but that adjacent to the road.

(2) Revetted storage buildings. These are strongly revetted on three sides. Advantage has been taken of the palm grove pattern of layout for concealment. Two are plainly visible and a third, located between these two, appears to have been dug in and sodded over. Note the water tanks. Such closely spaced
units probably do not contain explosives or highly inflammable materials.
