At 01.30 hrs a fire was observed on the N. edge of BUTKOVA.

At about 09.00 Scouts supported by 1 Platoon left the Defence Line and proceeded to BUTKOVA.  On arrival there notices were found written in English and Bulgarian giving information about recent reverse of the Italian Army.  The fire had apparently been lit to attract attention.  Verey Light trip guns were then placed on the tracks leading to the DZAFERLI and BUTKOVA DZUMA fords.  No enemy were encountered.
