Quinns Post Gallipoli


The Anzac position at Gallipoli known as Quinn's Post was crucial for the defence of ANZAC.

New Zealanders first took the position, which is located on the escapement above Monash Valley during the afternoon of 25 April 1915. The next day the position was taken over by Australians, on the 29th April 1915, Captain Hugh Quinn of the 15th Battalion AIF commanded the position thus the naming. On the 13 May, Australian 2nd Light Horse was charged with the defence of Quinn’s Post. It was one of the most dangerous trench fortifications at Anzac.

A high detailed book written by well-known Australian Military Historian, Peter Stanley. Covers all aspects/periods at Quinns Post. Including the winter period when Quinns was once again held by New Zealanders and latter when the Australian 17th Battalion held the post. The author undertook a huge amount of research of personal accounts of veterans.
Would be of immense interest to Family Historians of relatives who were members 2nd Light Horse, 15th and 17th Battalion AIF.
