[Manuscript, exercise book:] 'Fortification, Fair Notes'.

Publication Details: [1896- 1897]

Notes: Headings include Fortification, Machine Guns, Obstacles, Field Casements, Execution of Field Works, Bridging, Attack and Defence of Posts, Boning and Levelling, Road Making. The presence of the well-executed illustration enlivens what might otherwise be fairly perfunctory; the master's comments range from good to moderate, 'indiff' and fair - and in one place, in red pencil, 'This is all wrong'.
