Description

"Auto & truck 'Gas Station' at Dulag. 'Free windshield wash with a fill-up." From "Darkroom Soldier": "Refueling at Dulag. Trucks and jeeps used 80 octane fuel from these 55-gallon drums. Soldiers pressurized the drums, then pumped gasoline into their vehicles. As a joke, someone put up a sign, 'Free windshield wash with a fill-up.' At this fuel depot, Filipino civilians were apparently present and welcome." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
