SHWEBO AERODROME
Early stores shelters built with little attempt to hide them. Stores, probably fuel drums, can clearly be seen in them. In this case one shelter has been constructed about the base of a tree for purpose of camouflage. This is a quite typical blast shelter type dump.

MINGALADON AERODROME 
Trees have been used to hide almost completely all but three of these shelters.The revetments are probably of earth construction. Note the regular piles of supplies, probably fuel. This type storage is quite common to forward areas.
