Saturday, February 13, 1915 (continued)

Yesterday Bechari made a view (C30) showing progress in this area; compare this with C23, which shows the same area two days earlier. Today he made C31, which shows this area completed as far as the northern end of 2092 [= G 3092] and 3011.
During the past two or three days there has been considerable machine gun practice below the cliff. Some soldiers came up today looking for old rails with which to make a fireplace.
Today was warm with a south wind. The locusts are coming again in from the desert to the valley.

Sunday, February 14, 1915

Work on a new area was begun; this is at the eastern side of the step directly north of 2092 [= G 3092], and along the west face of the old mastaba 2080 [= G 1227]. Here the structures are of mud brick.
