GSGS MAP # / SHEET # / GRID REF: 4250 / 9E/3 / 350295
PHOTO SORTIE # / DATE / PRINT # / NEGATIVE #: C/172 / 1943-08-05 / 2.82 / 33293
NOTES: The target is new construction in orchards on the north side of the village of Ecalles-sur-Buchy. The photographic background shows the area before the construction began, but the dotted line shows the area of activity on 1 December. The activity which is still at an early stage bears some resemblance to that scene on Bois Carre type sites.
