LOOSE STORES - FUEL DRUMS
KISKA 
FUEL STACKS IN THE OPEN AND IN NARROW. TRENCH AND ELONGATED PIT ON BEACH. The regular stacked arrangement is outstanding feature of this type of dump. This was a fuel dump for the seaplane base at Kiska. A wrecked Mavis and some Jakes are pulled upon the beach. These fuel dumps were later covered with earth and sod for camouflage. When sod-covered such dumps could be distinguished by a mound-like appearance.

MILI 
(1) EMPTY FUEL DRUMS IN DISCARD PILES. The irregular plies located in open with no attempt at camouflage are fair evidence that these are discard dumps. The small (20' x 20') building is a D.F. unit.

(2) CLOSER VIEW OF PILE OF DISCARDED DRUMS. This pile or discarded fuer drums is similar to those shown in the stereo. Seen under the trees are many neatly stacked piles of drums which indicates that it is a main fuel dump.
