famous battlefield locations - Anzac  

South of the Anzac sector. A headland about a mile and a quarter south of the Anzac right flank. The Anzac landing was originally known as the Gaba (or Kaba) Tepe landing. Gaba Tepe was a heavily fortified Turkish observation and artillery position, and was one of the objectives of the original plan for the Landing. Gaba Tepe is often mentioned in orders, letters and diaries, but this means in fact the Anzac sector of the peninsula. Even today, some writers state that the Anzacs landed at Gaba Tepe. This is incorrect. In early May an attempt was made by Australian forces to attack the position, but was repulsed with heavy losses.
