Support troops from the 4th Australian Infantry Brigade wait behind Quinn’s Post, Gallipoli, after it was retaken on 29 May 1915.

Quinn’s was one of the most exposed and dangerous positions at Anzac and the constant stream of casualties required large numbers of replacements. The terrain at Anzac and the shallow depth of the beach-head meant that reserves had to be kept very close to the front line.
