__NOTES__

At each Lift 18 pdrs will search rapidly 100 yards at a time to next line.

4.5” Hows will lift to next Line.

When 18 prds are engaging points on the lines which are close to where our Infantry are expected to be H.E. only will be used.

The times of the Lifts of the Heavy and Siege Artillery will be the same as for Divisional Artillery.

The BLACK LINE shewn on Map ‘B’ is intended to represent that the Siege Artillery will creep through the Village of POZIERES.

Table of Expenditure of Ammunition will be forwarded later.

SPECIAL NOTE.

@@@@@@@@@

The portion of CRIMSON LINE between the points X.5.a.9.5. and R.35.c.4.3. will __not__ be fired on by any nature of gun or Howitzer between 2.45 and 3.30 during which time patrols will be sent to this portion. Fire will be re-opened there at 3.30.
