Towards the end of his stay on Gallipoli with the Australian Historical Mission, Lambert made a painting of ANZAC Cove with the hills of Suvla in the distance. Lambert wrote on 5 March 1919: "In the afternoon I did a picture, not a sketch, of Anzac Cove, chiefly palette-knife, and quite like it". The debris of war, including the ruins of a water-condensation plant, is still littered across the beach.
