LOOSE STORES
WEWAK 
(1) LOOSE STORES (CRATED)  Along roading palm grove. This is a common practice. Advantage is taken of the broken contour of a hillside and foliage and canvas are used for cover. However, good vertical photo graphs will often reveal the location of these small dispersal points. They appear as iregular light-toned areas against the darker vegetative backround. This differs from the upper right photo on page 35 (Rapopo) in that the area is more open and the presence of the road should lead one to expect small dispersal points along it.

(2) CRATED STORES DISPERSED IN PALM GROVE. This is the type dispersel shown in the vertical stereo on page 33. The supplies, probably canned foods or light ammunition, are scattered in small piles, taking advantage of the natural foliage of the palm grove. Light tones of the piles and track activity should reveal the existence of most of such supply dumps.

VILA 
CRATED AMMO IN PALM GROVE. This is common practice. Small scaItered piles covered with palm fronds are difficult to discern and difficult to destroy by strafing or bombing.
