LOOSE STORES
VILA 
(1) FUEL DUMP IN HEAVY JUNGLE. Fuel drums are often scattered irregularly through heavy vegetation for protection. This is also true for shells and bombs at advanced bases. Small dispersal piles in heavy growth such as this are practically impossible to detect in the vertical.

(2) FUEL DISPERSED IN PALM GROVE IN SMALL PILES. Palm fronds are adequate camouflage in such cases. If the grove is clear of heayy undergrowth, the stock piles are quite often visible despite camouflage attempts.

WOTJE
FUEL STACKS AND SCATTERED DRUMS IN OPEN. Palm frond camouflage is used to break up shadows and outline. Such small dumps,located generally on or near advanced airfields, may be easily identified in vertical view.

RANGOON
EXPLOSIVE OR FUEL STACKS IN WOODS.
