famous battlefield locations - Anzac 





Central Anzac sector. Turkish position. Gently sloping spur just south of The Nek, adjoining Pope's Hill and Dead Man's Ridge, and connecting the Bloody Angle to Baby 700. So named because the trenches constructed on it formed a grid-pattern, reminiscent of the layout of a chessboard. This was a Turkish position from the end of the first day of fighting. It was higher than, so completely overlooked, Quinn's Post, but was covered by rifle and machine-gun fire from Courtney's Post. It is today largely underneath a recently constructed car-park.

Information reproduced from the "Gallipoli" website of the late Jul Snelders, a true "Gallipolian".
