The story of the Lone Pine

The pine tree growing here represents part of the history woven in the ANZAC story.  On August 6, 1915, during the Batlle of Lone Pine at Gallipoli, one of the many Australian soldiers to fall was Pte. Mark Smith, 4th Battalion.

His brother, L/Cpl Benjamin Smith, 3rd Battalion later found a pine cone on the ridge and sent it home.  In 1934 his mother presented a tree grown from one of the seeds to the Australian War Memorial in order to honour all sons lost in the batlle at Lone Pine.  This pine is descended from that tree.

Total casualties were Australians 2277
Turkish 6930
