Reading on in Joe Murray's account of his 1974 visit, there does not seem to be much else in that vicinity which survived, apart from those gun pits. His companion was Dudley (Don) Lissenburg from the aforementioned RFA unit and he wanted to trace their wagon-lines. Joe writes:
“During the campaign the journey down that wide trench known as Longitudinal No.1 was a simple matter, or if you were a seasoned soldier, you ran the gauntlet in the open. But today there is no sign of that trench, the whole area has been ploughed up very roughly, corn and maize are growing where nothing except prickly scrub would grow.”
