Zeki had arrived at the most critical moment of the battle. The bitter fighting in the trenches was continuing but the Australians were gaining command of the situation. Their officers now realized the significance of The Cup, in the appalling warren of trenches it was extremely difficult to move men with any speed to the Turks’ weakest point. A group of Australians actually burst through Zeki’s men and swept down the steep sides of The Cup, reaching the Turk battalion headquarters. They could not be reinforced in time. The rest of Zeki’s men held firm. The Australians were killed to a man. This marked the limit of the advance.

“Gallipoli”, Robert Rhodes James, p. 266
