"Lt. P. C. Harris

Chief Engineer 15th A.C.

Sir,

I have the honor to report that 180 men were employed on the tranches last night.

The main approach was pushed forward from a A to D reaching the small ravine close to the enemy work.

The side approach B was extended about 20 yards C-D.

The work for two guns at M was finished blinds being put in the embrasures to protect the cannoneers from musketry.

The guns 20 Pds Parrotts will be put into position at this point immediately.

Very Respectfully

F H Mason

Engineer 12th Div."

Very Fine.
