This WC-57 belonged to the ATC (Air Transportation Command)
based at Muharraq, Bahrain, 1943. The caption reads:
Piled Coral Sand to Build Bahrain's Prehistoric Tumuli.
Thousands of such artificial mounds dot the depression
near air-conditioned quarters at Awali. Some of them are
probably 4,000 years old, but who built them is still a mystery."
