LOOSE STORES
MINGALADON, BURMA
FUEL OR EXPLOSIVE  STALKS IN WOODS The neat elongate rows and track activity are the clues to the existence of this dump. This is a base dump and acts as a distributing point for more advanced bases.

RAPOPO 
(1) LOOSE STORES IN  PALM GROVE.  It requires relatively low altitude photography to determine the character of supplies in dumps of this nature. In most cases the supplies are dispersed in small piles scattered throughout the grove. Palm fronds are used as camouflage. Heavy ammunition, bombs boxed ammunition and fuel are often dispersed in this manner. In this case several, small, excavated pits are visible, probably for storage of fuel drums or bombs.

(2) CRATED STORES ON EDGE OF PALM GROVE. This is somewhat the type oT dispersal shown in the above stereo pair. In this case, boxed supplies (probably ammunition) are piled at the vegetative border between palm grove and jungle. Often, track activity may be the only indication of the existence of such dispersal points.
