The enemy can set up an ambush too. Unfortunately this is only discovered as a rule when someone walks into it. The enemy set a very strong defence and ambush position just beyond Daumonia. This ambush dominated a flat stretch of road, about 400 yards long, with a high bare bank on one side and a steep drop to the river on the other. Along the whole of this piece of road there was no cover of any sort. As a result of the causalities that were suffered here, the spot was known to the troops as "Abattoir Corner", Finisterre Ranges, New Guinea.
