WWII PI SF gravel pit 1
Shovel and men working in a gravel pit at Brown's Point, San Fernando. The shovel looks like the Lorain used at the Milne Bay gravel pit. This activity apparently was central to the 618th operations. Normal output during July 1945 was 1000 truckloads per 24-hr day, or better than one truck every minute and a half. Peak daily output was about 1250 truckloads.
