HEDGE TYPE SHELTERS
MEIKTILA AERODROME 
Hedge Type Shelters chosen with some regard to natural ground pattern. The units probably contain fuel or explosives.

AUNGBAN LANDING GROUND 
Reffge Type Shelters .Notice the belt of wire enclosing the site.

MAGWE AERODROME 
Irregular blast shelters among scattered trees. The heavy tracks make the site an obvious one. A revetted storage hut is also present. Such a dump is likely to contain fuel or ammunition.

BURMA 
STEREO OF HEDGE-TYPE SHELTERS. In this case care has been taken to tthe natural- vegetation for camouflage. Earthen blast walls are built in irregular pattern around elongate shrubbery groups. The character of the stores is hidden by the vegetation. This is common practice in the Burma theatre. Note the extremely heavy track activity which tends to nullify the camouflaging effect of the location of the shelters.
