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.
