After the Turks determined that the attack at Kumkale was a feint, the 33rd Infantry Regiment was transported across the straits to the Gallipoli peninsular with the express purpose of attacking the Australian and New Zealand formations in the hills by Anzac. The map below details the progress of the attack from the view of the 19th Infantry Division. The course of the 33rd Infantry Regiment can be seen in the centre of the map.
It would appear that the 33rd Infantry Regiment was detached from the 11th Infantry Division and attached to the 19th Infantry Division specifically for this attack.
