that is very interesting indeed. I dont suppose you have the other side of the map with the survey details or  a date ?  I have one of the same area BUT it is called KOJA Dere and is the very example I mentioned in an earlier post. I cant get the resolution high enough to read the text. I will see what i can do with it.

The following website shows the above map but allows the user to select a particular grid to view and then enlarges the view and allows it to be saved.

This copy of the Kurija Dere map is extremely stained, and one must assume that these stains originate from the battlefield around Anzac Cove at Gallipoli. This map has been digitally repaired for clarity of display, but you can view the original stained condition of the map below.
