Truck Assembly

Description

WWII-Work Assignments/New Guinea.
Ink drawing of a truck being uncrated and assembled.
Verso: "Nov. 22, 1944. This morning we made trucks. They come crated with all removable parts removed. Our job was to uncrate them and assemmble them. The truck here is being lifted by a repair truck while the wheels are put on. The trees on the left are banana trees and in the far background are crates. Between the trees and the crates is a string of alligator tanks. Two men are in the truck putting on a sideboard. A crated truck can be seen in the extreme right."
Maurice added that his job was to put his foot on the brake so that the axels wouldn't spin when they put the wheels on.
