Taken at an adjoining air field at Blackhorse, a wheeled fire extinguisher is visible in the distance. It possibly indicates the location of a 'fuel farm' (not pictured) for POL - a military abbreviation of 'Petroleum, Oil and Lubricants' - supplied to support flying operations. Situated in an isolated area, as a safety precaution, it was one of many of the refuelling points available for helicopters of 9 Squadron RAAF.
