Of Gully Ravine a Scottish chaplain wrote: ‘ What a wonderful and romantic gorge it is - its earthen cliffs cut into a fantastic shapes by rain and stream; tributary ravines breaking down at every angle into the main cleft. Scrub and heather grew wherever a root-hold was possible; and flowers were still blooming in shady nooks. A multitude of khaki-clad men at arms, with their crazy shelters, dug outs, and open-air kitchens, their transport and water-carts and animals, crowded the bottom.

"Gallipoli”, Robert Rhodes James, p. 161-162
