Shrapnel Valley was the centre of our position. Initially the whole valley had been a vast wilderness, but it was not long before the sappers had tapped there for water and a couple of barrels appeared halfway up. About the same time a field dressing station came into being in the area. As the position was strategically important, our Infantry Brigade Headquarters claimed the top of the valley; a New South Wales Battalion Headquarters kept house alongside.
