Enemy behaviour on 25 December 1941:
7th Support Group, advancing hesitantly, reached the area west of Ghemines on both sides of the Via Balbia. Armoured cars reconnoitered thence into the direction of Agedabia. The mass of 7th Armoured Division in the area of Saunnu – Msus – Antelat and south of it, with the addition of 22nd Armoured Brigade, and 22nd Guards Brigade, felt forward against the north-east of the Agedabia defensive position during the afternoon with reconnaissance forces supported by artillery. 4th Indian Division in the area east and northeast of Benghazi advanced only slowly due to poor state of tracks and road destruction.
