"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

The Battle of Anzac Cove, Turkish OC of 1/33 IR diary up until his death, 30 April 1915, Part 3

The Battle of Anzac Cove

Turkish OC of 1/33 IR diary up until his death, 30 April 1915

Part 3

 

Diary, page 3.

 

Extract from a diary found on a dead Turkish Officer, the major commanding 1st Battalion, 33rd Infantry Regiment, Gallipoli, 30 April 1915.

 

Divisional Orders

1. Stores have been established at Maidos - Bigali Village and at the Barracks of Bigali for the purpose of storing there in the arms and equipment of soldiers wounded and killed.

2. Every advantage must be taken of the empty transport returning from advanced lines, for conveying these arms etc.

Note: It has been explained to OC Battalions that as stated in above order, all these arms and etc must be sent to these stores so as to lose nothing whatever of same.



To OC 33rd Regiment 30 April 1915

The 2nd Battalion of the 125th Regiment which was to come to our left wing is not there, but a whole company of it is at Nvur rear. This evening a company of this very battalion came to take a position to our left, but with great noise and shouting of orders, it showed itself to the enemy. The squad officer was killed and all the men ran away. Our left wing is still empty. Le Zia Effendi of the 125th Regiment is in the rear of that squad and as everyone of my battalion is very important, and as on the left wing, no help was forthcoming from any quarter, we are on the defensive, meeting with extreme hardships. I submit that it is more necessary that the position of the detachment detailed from the 12th Regiment to our Regiment should be reinforced, and the small fortification found in the neighbourhood would be taken in hand and made use of as it is most important that the safety of our left wing be ensured.

The Battle of Anzac Cove

Turkish OC of 1/33 IR diary up until his death, 30 April 1915

Map of Anzac, 27 April 1915

 

[Click on map to enlarge.]

 

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.

The Battle of Anzac Cove

Turkish OC of 1/33 IR diary up until his death, 30 April 1915

Part 4

 

 

Extract from a diary found on a dead Turkish Officer, the major commanding 1st Battalion, 33rd Infantry Regiment, Gallipoli, 30 April 1915.

 

Note: That the strength of the following squads of the Battalion, No's. 1, 2 and 3 of 33rd Regiment is composed of 20, 3 and 50 men respectively, is known to OC 2nd Battalion of the 128th Regiment. They have remained without flood for the last four days, but sufficient bread was sent last night. Please let it be known that the bread and other allowances of the remaining battalions are to be found in the zone of the 125th Regiment. This squad is commanded by Sergt Kalil of the 3rd Battalion.

Shrapnel burst in some of our Battalion with the following result:

CompanyKilledWounded
No. 1 25
No. 255
No. 355

 

Very Pressing

To OC Artillery, 30 May 1915, 6.15 am.


Our fleet is heavily is heavily bombarding our advanced zone, please for immediate remedy.

(Sgd) Major, OC 1st Battalion.


To OC 1st and 3rd Battalions 30 April 1915 and CO.

Send at once by mounted man to 3rd division. Do you not see that it is convenient to change your position, to strengthen the trenches with the weal lines of snipers, and to send here under cover other available men, and that it is hoped all means will be taken to protect the snipers.

(Sgd) Acting Officer Commanding 33rd Regiment.

 

While things may not have been goood for the troops at Anzac, the above document indicates things were even worse for the Turks trying their best to mount a defence and offence. This document speaks of trooops starving and problems with friendly fire which is just as devastating as hostile fire.
