4th September 1915

Looking south towards the coast from artillery positions on the heights of Gallipoli, between
Brown's Dip and Macay's Hill, towards Lone Pine, 2nd September 1915 - the same area
systematically bombarded by the Turks, & defended by the 7th Battery (below).

Saturday 4th September

A cool breeze blowing but I am not feeling too well.  Stomach trouble again.

Sept. 4
(Captain William Charles Waite, temporary O/C 7th Battery)

07.20 to 07.45 No. 4 gun fired 7 rds P.S. at slope + crest of PLATEAU 400, N. end of SURPRISE GULLY in retaliation of gun firing on our trenches at LONESOME PINE.  Ranges 915x to 950.  Effect – Parapets + overhead cover partially destroyed.  Enemy’s fire at LONESOME PINE and at No. 4 gun ceased at 07.45 probably owing to our aeroplane appearing over Turkish lines.  Observers reported considerable movement of troops on MAIDOS - KRITHIA road during the morning.
