The landing at S Beach was the smallest of all five attempted at Helles. It involved just three companies of the 2nd Battalion. South Wales Borderers, together with a detachment of engineers, medical and artillery personnel and a few marines. They were landed in the north-east corner of Morto Bay and the attack , closely supported by HMS Cornwallis, was split into two sections with two companies attacking the cliff above S Beach from inside the Bay, and the third rowing out into the Dardanelles to attack this position from behind. The position was taken with relative ease and few casualties.
