Turkish identity disc : Lone Pine
Oval tin identity disc marked in Arabic script with a series of numbers and letters. The legible numbers are 4, 5 and 96. The top of the disc is pierced with two suspension holes which appear to have been made with a nail. Both front and rear surfaces are stained with accretion.
One of three Turkish identity discs recovered from the Lone Pine trench system in 1919 by Charles Bean and the Australian Historical Mission upon their return to Gallipoli.
