the Gallipoli Houses










Central Anzac sector. Spur extending seawards from the Second Ridge, adjoining the northern edge of the 400 Plateau. Between it and 'The Razorback' (a spur extending seaward from the 400 Plateau, opposite Johnston's Jolly) ran 'Bridges Road.' The hill separates Shrapnel Valley from Bridge's Road. It is near the north-eastern end of Braund's Hill that 4th Battalion Parade Ground cemetery is located. Named after Lt-Colonel G. F. Braund, commander of the 2nd Battalion, who was here shot and killed by one of his own sentries when he failed to to answer a challenge.
