"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

Extracts from a diary found on a dead Turkish Officer

(Major Commanding 1st Battalion 33rd Regiment)

South West of Nojacre 27 April 1915


At 8pm the battalion in connection with the Regiment advanced to the reserve lines. I received orders to make a vigorous attack on the enemy with the 72nd Regiment which was the first line in support. Though the attack was to be general on the whole front, the officer commanding the 72nd Regiment signalled to me he was not able to reinforce the right and left wings, as a result of the incomplete attack the three companies of our Battalion were told to extend in line, and attack in open order: although both officers and men rushed forward to take the enemy's position, no one was able to locate it, and our men continued to advance but these movements were impeded by some pine trees and a number of officers and NCO's. In this way the companies, which were already short of reinforcements, however our men loved to use the bayonet, advanced continuously but at the moment, when they were about to drive the enemy into the sea, it was impossible to stop the fusillade. This caused the belief that our men were firing on each other and there was a moment of confusion. The enemy as shown the sketch occupied several hills and it was impossible to fire on them without exposing ourselves to a flanking line. Orders were given to withdraw to a distance of 250 to 300 metres.

 

This diary came into the hands of the defending Australian soldiers at Gallipoli. It gives an extraordinary insight into the actions of the Turkish forces in their efforts to repel the Anzac invasion.

[Click over the map for a larger version] 

 

To trace the movement of the 1st Battalion, 33rd Infantry Regiment, 11th Division, the starting place is just south of Kumkale in Anatolia.  At the little town called Pinarbasi the 11th Infantry Division had its Headquarters and the 1st Battalion remained with other battalions of the Regiment. Care must be taken here as this Pinarbasi is not the major regional town of the same name in the east of Anatolia. The above map gives the location of the forces around Kumkale before the dawn attack of the Allies on 25 April 1915.

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

 

To OC 7th Regiment 29 April 1915

The third battalion of the 27th Regiment in conjunction with 2nd Battalion of the 32nd Regiment should support the right wing. The first was estimated on the right wing. A squad from each company is detailed for sniping, and the remainder are to be in the trenches, up to now the strength of each company has been 150 men, a squad of which is snipers. (NB. The full strength of a company is 250 men.)


Left Wing Order 29 April 1915

1. Owing to the death of Kamahan Stevhie Beir, the command of the section is now given to me. I hope with the help of God to work this properly and loyally. God helps the servant who works diligently therefore each official must pay attention to his duties.

2. As stated i a Divisional Order to be secure from the enemy depends on steadfastness: which must be attained by good tactics. The lines of defence must be strongly and carefully maintained. The men should not be allowed to rove about here and there. Every battalion taking advantage of night, must collect the arms of the killed and send same to the rear every effort must be made to clear the battlefield.

3. Line of communication must be protected, and the smallest movement of the enemy at any place must be notified at once.

4. The transport of ammunition, food stuffs and other important necessities must be carried out either in the evening or at dawn only, nothing but more water may be brought in at day time.

 

As an Australian, it is difficult to place myself in the position of the "enemy" and yet that is the intent of this diary entry. These entries are important in understanding how the person on the other side of the trench viewed the Allied forces. By showing the other side, these men are no longer shadows described by the term "Turk" but living and breathing humans who felt the same anguish, fears and problems that focus the commonality of a shared humanity in an unfortunate fratricidal conflict. It is refreshing to know that any animus that might have existed has long been consigned to the waste bins of history. As Turkish archives become readily available and more accessible to Turks and international scholars, so this understanding will increase and jingoistic books that demonise for patronise "Jacko" can also diminish in their power.
