the Gallipoli Houses


Monash led the two leading platoons across Aghyl Dere into a field of stubble that became known as Australia Valley. As the moon came up the Turks opened fire. It was now 2.30, and this is where the big mistake of navigation seems to have occured. The Australians didnít know where they were. As has been mentioned, the two leading battalions, the 13th and 14th, were supposed to break off to the left. Monash now sent these battalions out into Australia Valley.
