Sheet 52 Ammunition dump
The picture shows an area where an ammunition dump was blown up during the fighting. Ammunition was thrown over a large area on the edge of the city.
Cities are relatively safe places during war and many people have moved there to escape the fighting. The city has grown and people now need to build their homes in the place where the ammunition dump was blown up. The people collect the ammunition that gets in their way and pile it in the area shown in the photograph.
Professionals may like to try to identify the items they can see.
