LOOSE STORES
KISKA
GERTRUDE COVE. Stores include coal, crates, lumber, and other building material. Small honeycombed pile contains window frames. A few dugouts at base of hill across lake were used for storage.

MAIN CAMP. This general storage area serviced the main camp at Kiska. Fuel types present are oil drums and coal. Two large coal piles are located as indicated in the plan drawing. Coal piles show up in vertical view as irregular dark areas with some relief. Another type of fuel present at Kiska was known as Renton, a composition of coal dust, tar and oil pressed into perforated cylindrical bricks. This material was stacked in small piles which were too small to be identified in photos of the area. Gasoline and oil drums were stored in long trenches and pits covered with sod. In some instances these storage groups were left uncovered and could be readily identified. When covered, the slight elevation of the pile above ground level made them conspicuous. Note the lumber stacked along the road leading from the saw mill toward the main camp.

KAVIENG 
FUEL STACK IN PALM GROVE NEAR PLANE SHELTER. There is some attempt at camouflage. Small stacks of nature will often be found adjacent to plane shelters. The two structures in the lower right are tents.

MAJURO
STACK OF EMPTY FUEL DRUMS. It is not normal procedure to stack 'empties' in neat piles.
