NOTES: The target is a Bois Carre type site situated on the N. side of the village and only about a mile from Beauvoir (XI/A/79). Tall trees hide some of the construction but at least two skis are present and several concrete buildings. There is an excavation and other activity about 140 yards E. of this site but cloud on this photograph prevents further details.
