Dispersed in a cutting through the jungle, the bombs are conveyed to the airstrip for loading on the small trolleys and drawn by a tractor, seen right middle distance. A plane on the strip awaiting loading is seen in the background. The unit is one of the Royal New Zealand Air Force, Piva Airstrip, Bouganiville.
