Observation exercise, South Africa Air School No 41


Aerial photograph of a settlement built along a single loop of unpaved road at the confluence of a river and the sea. The area is forested, giving way to open countryside on the hillside beyond. A road alongside has cars travelling on it with cars parked to one side. There are service vehicles and grounded aircraft within an area enclosed with single storey, flat roofed buildings. Outside this area, along the riverside are pitched circular tents. People are visible in the area and one is walking across a bridge at the river's mouth.
