Card/Transcription No.: 289


POSITION: Stood back to south wall upon east end of box 288, facing north.

For description etc. see No. 282.

The doors were found open; the cord & seals missing, but there was sufficient evidence to show that it had been sealed and that in all probability device 275 was used (though this is only conjectural).
