... there is
no information provided about the dead officer. This site is named
Değirmenburnu (Mill Point) and during the Gallipoli Campaign an army corps
field hospital and hospital for the seriously wounded were located here. All
those who couldnt be treated in the hospitals closer to the front and those
critically wounded were transferred to this hospital. Hundreds of Turkish
soldiers lie buried on the slopes just above this memorial and the surrounding
area. The presence of numerous headstones from the time support this.
