The air raid protective services. The speedy laying and coupling of firehose is often a difficult task, but it is essential if the auxiliary firemen are to function to the best advantage. They must learn to clamber like monkeys over debris, and must learn to estimate the strength of standing sections of bombed buildings

Sharpshooter. Smiling from behind the turret of a China Air Task Force bomber is Technical Sergeant Douglas Radney, whose record of one confirmed plane destroyed and three probables qualified him for membership in the China Skeet and Gun Club.

The scuttled French fleet at Toulon: aerial pictures. On November 28, 1942, the day after the scuttling and firing of the ships of the French fleet in Toulon harbor, photographs were taken by the Royal Air Force. Many of the vessels were still burning so that smoke and shadows obscure part of the scene. But the photographs show, besides the burning cruisers, ship after ship of the contre-torpilleurs and destroyer classes lying capsized or sunk, testifying to the thoroughness with which the French seamen carried out their bitter task. While the vast damage done is shown in these photographs, no exact list of the state of the ships can be drawn up, since the ships themselves cannot be seen in an aerial photograph. Thus the upper deck of the battle cruiser Strasbourg is not submerged, but here are signs that the vessel has settled and is grounded. The key plan C.3296 shows the whereabouts of the majority of the ships and their condition as far as it can be seen from the photographs. Picture shows: damaged and sunk light cruisers and destroyers visible through the shadow and the smoke caused by the burning cruisers

Auto conversion to airplane engines. With normal operations of this automobile factory suspended for the duration, the gigantic task of converting the entire plant (floor space: 500' x 900') to war production was taken over by the National Defense Plant Corporation. This involved all degrees of remodelling, the removal of old and installation of new machinery, and extensive rebuilding of the plant itself. This hand milling machine, formerly used in manufacture of automobile motors, has been converted to production of airplane engines. In peacetime it was used to mill the pulley keyway on the front of crankshafts. It cost $150 to convert this $1,800 machine with installation of a special fixture to enable milling of staking nicks at each end of crankpin oil hobs. Chevrolet, Buffalo, New York

Auto conversion to airplane engines. With one hundred percent conversion of this automobile factory to production of airplane engines, the gigantic task of remodelling old machinery, removal of old and installation of new equipment, and extensive rebuilding of the plant itself was formidable--but speedy. Under terms of its contract, production was not scheduled until October, but Herulean efforts of management and labor reduced this to early spring of this year. Carloads of scrap material torn out of the plant are shown here at a siding back of the factory. Chevrolet, Buffalo, New York

Production. Airplane manufacture, general. Sorting rivets may seem a lowly task in the making of war planes. But it plays an essential part in the mass production of aircraft and in the conservation of vital materials. These workers at the Long Beach, California, plant of Douglas Aircraft Company help to keep many others working. Most important of the many types of aircraft made at this plant are the B-17F ("Flying Fortress") heavy bomber, the A-20 ("Havoc") assault bomber and the C-47 heavy transport plane for the carrying of troops and cargo

Transformer manufacture. It's a formidable task, but Jack Hassel can wind one of these asbestos insulated low volts coils in a day. Essential to America's war efforts, these asbestos coils are used in air cooled transformers which are explosion-proof, hence advantageous for use in ships, mines and large buildings. Westinghouse, Sharon, Pennsylvania
