Scene of two partially destroyed Japanese landing barges listing in the water, with trees and a low mountain range in the background. Dargie noted, "These barges were strafed by Australian Kittyhawks and bombed by American B17's were a desolate sight as they rusted by the shattered strip of coconut palms where the Japanese had established one of their main supply dumps".
