10th Battalion casualties 29 April 1915

After four days of continuous fighting following the Gallipoli dawn landing, the 10th Battalion was relieved during the night of April 28th 1915.  In the book 'The Fighting 10th' Cecil B. Lock wrote "The men of the 10th were utterly exhausted, and required proper food and rest". 

In the early hours of the morning of the 29th the 10th Battalion bivouacked at Shell Green. Close to half the men were listed as casualties.  
Lest We Forget.
