Gaba Tepe Beach, where the Australasians so heroically made good their footing on the Gallipoli Peninsula, in April, is shown on the official map as the most easterly of the points at which the troops of Sir Ian Hamilton’s Expeditionary Army landed. It has now been made, as our photographs above show in very interesting detail, the base and depOt at which the war stores and supplies of every kind for the Australasian Division are put ashore and collected for transport to the regiments of the attacking line further


inland. Munitions of every kind, in addition to provisions, are lisembarked at Gaba Tepe, and, in a number of instances, are carried up the cliff roadway by the transport mules seen in the foreground about to x loaded. -At Gaba Tebe, also, is established the medical deplt and base hospital for the same troops. On August 3 the Press Bureau announced a successful attack on Turkish trenches on the right of the Australasia:: position, which was thereby much improved. About seventy Turks were killed.
