WWII Refrigeration Truck Unit Photos – “The Penguin Fleet”


One aspect of war that is not normally discussed is the transportation of temperature sensitive material.  Blood, meat, and some chemicals needed to be kept cool for use in the field and needed special trucks to deliver the goods.  Here is a set of photos showing the trucks of the unit!  Try finding these anywhere else!  Scanned from original negatives.

  1. I have photos of the Penguin Fleet that were my Uncles, I’m a history professor and hang on to things like that. My Uncle was Arthur Shaver. I would be happy to share my photos if you are interested.
