Picture of Soldiers Sitting in a WW2 Bomb Shelter on Ie Shima.

This is a much stronger shelter.  It appears that each group

probably next to their work sites.

These soldiers are sitting in a bomb shelter on the island of Ie Shima.  The shelter
is built in a trench, reinforced with heavy timber and covered with sand bags. 
This is very good protection against bombs from Japanese Aircraft with the
exception of a direct hit.
