REVETTED STORAGE SHEDS
MILI
(1) This strongly revetted shed, somewhat similar in size and location to that shown to the right is probably a storage unit for materials required for servicing some function of the airfield a portion of which may be seen in the upper left corner of the photo.

(2) Revetted storage shed within coral sand blast wall. The building measures approx. 100'x60'. The near hits by bombs and the apparent bomb damage visible at one end of the roof would indicate that this unit was not used for highly explosive or inflammable material. It could, however, have been used for storage of light arms ammunition.

SAIPAN 
(3) Heavily revetted huts for storage. Approx. 80'x50'. The blast walls in this case are of earth reinforced with concrete and covered with sod and shrubbery. A blast wall is present across the entrances. The heavy blast walls would indicate that these units contain explosive or inflammable material. Precautions taken indicate something that must be well protected from near misses scored by bombing.

(4) Revetted storage shed (approx. 80'x50'). This revetted shed is similar in every respect to those described above except that portions of two sides of the blast wall are formed by higher ground. The concrete base and reinforcement of the blast wall can be plainly seen here. This is a storage unit for explosive materials. The other small buildings are barracks and dwellings.

(5) Revetted storage shed (80'X50'). Note shrubbery on blast wall for camouflage. This is a storage unit for explosive materials. The other small buildings are barracks and dwellings.
