The Curristan Peoples Army (CPA) are assigned to the Corrunna Line.

The 3rd Division (1500 Soldiers) have also been assigned to the "Corunna Line". They have been given orders to shoot to kill if any person tries to cross the border at other than the checkpoints or attempts to smash through the checkpoints.

*Classifed Update*

Construction starts on trenches 500 metres behind the first line of trenches. These are more complex and include 3 Inch Stokes Mortars in reinforced pits. First line is reinforced with 3 lines of barbed wire 4 miles deep and installation of heavily concealed Vickers Machine Gun nests, designed to stop any person attempting to cross. Lewis Light Machine Guns are placed near every checkpoint and are also heavily camouflaged.

First Victim of Curristan Border defences

A lone male has attempted to cross the Curristan border without using the border crossings and has paid with his life. A sniper shot him once in the head, killing him instantly. His next of kin has been informed.

*Classified*

Kill had been made by a Vickers Machine Gun nest when the male tried to penetrate an unfinished minefield in front of the defensive line. Around 110 bullets were fired. 24 of them hit their target. Family have not been traced although he has been identified as a Curristani Drug Smuggler attempting to re-enter Curristan from Lubeck. Several packets of Heroin and a stolen Curristan Peoples Army Issue Webley Mark 5 Service Revolver has been discovered in a rucksack beside the body. The remains have been buried in an umarked grave 3 miles inside the Curristan border and the drugs destroyed. The Revolver has been returned to a Curristan armory.

First, Second and Third line construction has finished. Total budget is to be around $3,000,000 Curristan Dollars. The final positions are bunkers that house the off duty soldiers and ammunition stores. This line is 1200 metres behind the second line, also connected by communication trenches with mined areas to prevent infiltration.

First Corrunna Line upgrade is to be started soon with the following modifications:

- Extra barbed wire to increase resistance to infiltrating Drug Smugglers, Terrorists and Immigrants

- Certain sections will be covered in lumber roofs to protect the soldiers inside them from the elements.

- Pungee Pits in unmined areas covered with foliage to catch intruders

- Specially built roads that avoid civilian roads

The upgrade will take longer than the original construction due to the work involved. Estimated Costs is around $12 Million Curristan Dollars and will take around 5 weeks.

Corrunna Line Upgrade completion: 70%

First summer has begun with work progressing faster than first predicted. Military spending has been curtailed due to the state of the Curristan Economy which has forced many people into helping to complete the upgrade for the minimum wage of $5.10 a hour.
