Men of the 17th Battalion out for a rest after serving in the trenches at Quinn’s Post, Anzac Cove. Lieutenant Chambers (holding white pad) is calling the roll. c. September 1915.
Quinn’s Post was one of the Australian positions closest to the Turkish lines with the trenches being at some places only meters apart. Fighting at positions like Quinn’s was constant and there was a never ending stream of casualties coming down to the beach from the trenches there.
