Equipment Stores (USN Supply).
Cold-rolled fabricated steeel arched-shaped tibs made in three parts creating a span of 40 feet, and spaced at four foot centres to form a building 100 feet long. Clad with corrugated iron sheeting with the top third laid on fabricated steel purlins and the remaining sheeting fixed directly to the ribs.
These were probably aircraft equipment stores for the storage of (among others) dinghies and other safety equipment.
One building is now a garage workshop. The other is part of a timber yard. Both are in good condition. Other details: Buildings 84 and 85; Fig 14.
