Tuesday, November 10, 1914 (continued)


At the southeast corner of 42 (G 5220) are two dump heaps of red gravel, thrown out from the direction of 42 (G 5220) or 40 (G 5230) during some early clearly operation (i.e. preliminary to the construction of 42 (G 5220) or 40 (G 5230).
Ordered the rubble wall and the surface of the hard gravel deposit to be cleared for measurement and photography. Afterwards I will dump over this area and cover up the enclosing wall. The latter is already badly damaged and will go to pieces if left exposed.

Between 44 (G 5110) and 43 (G 5210) have progressed into the niche of 44 (G 5110) and between 44 (G 5110) and 42 (G 5220). Several more fragments of limestone relief [14-11-9, 14-11-10, 14-11-11] in the upper debris.

No news of importance reported from the war.
