May 26th 1915
Commencement of a factory at Anzac Cove to make periscope rifles. This device, which allowed a soldier to aim and fire at the enemy from his trench without showing himself, was invented by Lance-Corporal W C B Beech, 2nd Battalion (New South Wales), of Sydney.
Turkish snipers opened fire down Monash Valley from a new trench near the Nek. Fifty Australians were hit until a field gun knocked out the trench.
Four destroyers arriving at Anzac Cove with troops were shelled. The shelling killed four soldiers and a seaman and wounded 41 others of whom seven subsequently died. As a result daytime landings ceased. After this all troops and animals were landed at night.
