At about 9.30a.m. the fleet for over an hour assisted by the artillery bombarded the Turkish position down south in full view of us. They fired over seven thousand shells. The Tommies then advanced 800 yards and straightened the line. At half past twelve the artillery have commenced to fire on our front. Every man was under arms. The 3rd Bde advanced and took two trenches, the Snipers and Pine Ridge but had to leave them on account of the hyditte fumes. The L.H. also took a line of trenches at Kabah Tepe. The Turks evacuated the knoll at the end. Our casualties were fairly heavy but the Turks trenches were full of dead Turks.
