Milner Hunslet Smokebox

Can anyone please advise on how the smokebox is fixed to the frames on the Milner Hunslet. I may be being a bit thick but cannot figure it out from the drawings. There is a "Smokebox - side detail" which shows two holes in the sides, undimensioned but labelled "drill on assembly" which I assume have something to do with the fixing, but I cannot see what these fix to, as the valve chamber is on the inside of the frames in the location I would expect to fit the smokebox.
I'm sure it will be obvious when someone explains it !

Having a guess but if you look at the frames, the top edge isn't straight, but has a raised tab in the smokebox area. I presume that the smokebox is bolted to these tabs

Chris - Thanks for that, I was being a bit slow and have worked it out, it's like everything, once you know, it's obvious. It is bolted to the tabs using 2 of the cylinder bolts. It was just the position and dimensions weren't obvious.
