6th-9th August 1915....100 years ago in history we remember the battle for Chunuk Bair. On 8th August the Wellington Battalion captured the hill of Chunuk Bair and for the first and only time in the campaign Allied troops could see their original objective - the Dardenelles. After hours of what can only be described as heroic fighting, the Wellingtons were driven back my massive Turkish counter-attacks and suffered appalling losses. Corporal Cyril Bassett, a signaller, was awarded the Victoria Cross.
