Any earth ' works, pits, etc., that are erected or I dug are strewn with leaves and bran ches, and the earth disturbed gener | ally, so that from above nothing un i usual shall be spotted by keen-eyed : airmen. j A battery of guns is seldom placed : along the skyline, for there it is an ; easy mark. Generally the guns are : concealed some distance down the in ' cline in front of the skyline, unless j the gunB are howitzers, in which case j they can be best served from behind the ridge.
