The No.3 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force work-shops (both sections) remain with the Base Party. An European Personnel, Indian Pattern(EPIP) tent rigged out in the desert serves as transport workshops. There, trucks, trailers and cars are kept in good running order - very necessary in this country. In the foreground an aircraftsman is oxy-welding, Gazala, Libya.
