- Description: V-mail operation in the field at APO 929. "View of the paper processing machine. On these machines the entire paper processing operation takes place, through a developer solution, an acid rinse, a fixing bath and finally through three wash tanks, before being dried over large heating drums. A roll of paper is processed on these machines in approximately two hours. In this scene, the operator is making a splice which will enable the machine to keep on a continuous run, eliminating the need for stopping to change and put on new work. The three jars in the background provide, through a gravity feed system, a continuous replenishment of the chemicals. " Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
