"SS Columbus sailors garden-Ft. Stanton, N.M."
In the second photo, they're working on a swimming pool, for their own use. Wheelbarrow show in the rear to the right. The photo is wider, but I only found it cut across two pages of a magazine article here: German Sailors on the High Desert
Same wheelbarrows, probably; different projects. Early 1940s.
