Description

Vol. 2 No. 37 ……. This week’s cover photo was shot from the deck of the S. S. Herbert S. Dargue, one of a fleet of sea-going Aircraft Repair Units now on duty in the Pacific. (See story of Dargue’s skipper, Page 13). ARU’s, completely equipped for third and fourth echelon repairs, drop anchor in combat areas almost immediately after first U. S. planes land there. Shuttling between ship and shore is a busy small boat, which transports damaged plane parts from airstrips to the ARU’s repair shops before service groups ashore are set up. Photo by Capt Loomis Dean.
