‘The enemy only fired over a few shells today and everything has been extremely quiet. An old type of light cruiser has been steaming around Imbros and off Suvla point today but has done no firing. At about 10pm a T.B.D steamed in close to Kaba Tepe* and shelled the enemy in the twin trenches on our right flank. We could hear heavy rifle fire at Cape Helles very distinctly tonight. A French aeroplane flew over our lines again today.’

*Gaba Tepe often was a focus of Allied artillery fire.

For the classroom: Why was it important to knock out this Turkish position?
