Leyte, Mud Boat 1
"Carabao pulling a 'mud boat' to bring supplies from the street to our kitchen - Too muddy for our trucks" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Mud Boat Season. When deep mud made four-wheel-drive jeeps useless (background), many key places on Leyte became inaccessible. So, during the rainy season, U.S. forces hired Filipino carabao drivers with mud sleds to ferry all essentials -- food, mail, water, and other supplies -- from graveled main roads to such essential institutions as the Dulag mess hall." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
