Captain Sam Butler, holding the white truce flag, leads the blindfolded Turkish envoy Major Kemal Ohri from General Sir William Riddell Birdwood's Headquarters to return to the Turkish lines. Major Ohri was representing the Turkish army in negotiations at Birdwood's Headquarters to arrange an armistice so that the 3,000 Turks and approximately 169 Australians killed during the Turkish attack on Anzac positions 19 May 1915 could be buried. A nine hour armistice was arranged for 24 May 1915.
