‘The enemys new gun fired several shells during the day, it appears to be situated somewhere near the Olive Grove. Another 4.7 naval gun was brought ashore today. We received a tin of milk to 4 men with our rations today, several occasions lately we have had rice and raisons issued to us and the milk will be very acceptable with them.’

Sounds like to me that the Turks have one more step ahead. I'm glad that the 4.7 naval gun was brought ashore other wise they would have been out matched. I praise those men fighting for Australia and New Zealand.
