May 27th 1915
Night attack by the British destroyer HMS Rattlesnake and men of the 9th Battalion (Queensland) under Lieutenant M Wilder-Neligen on a Turkish trench near the beach at Gaba Tepe. The purpose of this, and subsequent attacks, was to make the enemy think that a major offensive would be launched from the southern positions of Anzac.The Turks attacked and broke into Quinn's Post after exploding a mine close to the Australian front line. After heavy fighting the enemy were driven out and the position restored. During the fighting Major Hugh Quinn, 15th Battalion (Queensland, Tasmania), of Charters Towers and Townsville, Queensland, after whom the post was named, was killed.
