We would like to introduce to you our Gallipoli ANZAC Battlefield Tours for August 2015,
marking the 100th Anniversary of the commemorations of ANZAC on the shores
of ANZAC Cove in Turkey.
Australia will hold a service on 6 August to commemorate the Battle of Lone Pine.
will also hold a service on 8 August to commemorate the Battle of Chunuk Bair.
The Battle of Lone Pine was fought between Australian and Ottoman Empire
forces during the First World War between 6th and 10th August 1915.
Part of the Gallipoli campaign, the battle was part of a diversionary attack to
draw Ottoman attention away from the main assaults against Sari Bair, Chunuk
Bair and Hill 971, which became known as the August Offensive.
The Australians, initially at brigade strength, managed to capture the main
Ottoman trench line from the battalion that was defending the position in the
first few hours of the fighting; however, the fighting continued for the next
three days as the Ottomans brought up reinforcements and launched numerous
counterattacks in an attempt to recapture the ground they had lost.
As the counterattacks intensified the Australians brought up two fresh
battalions. Finally, on 9th August the Ottomans called off any further attempts
and by 10th August offensive action ceased, leaving the Australians in control of
Nevertheless, despite the Australian victory, the wider August Offensive of
which the attack had been a part failed and a situation of stalemate developed
around Lone Pine which lasted until the end of the campaign in December 1915
when the Australian troops were evacuated from the peninsula.
