LONE PINE WAS CAPTURED AND REINFORCED, BUT THE A.I.F. LOSSES WERE EXTREMELY HIGH. MORE THAN 2000 AUSTRALIANS WERE KILLED OR WOUNDED IN THIS SINGLE ENGAGEMENT. MOST OF THEM IN HAND-TO-HAND FIGHTING HEAVIER THAN ANY OTHER IN WHICH THE AUSTRALIANS WERE TO TAKE PART THROUGHOUT THE GREAT WAR.

OF THE NINE VICTORIA CROSSES AWARDED TO AUSTRALIANS ON GALLIPOLI SEVEN WERE WON AT LONE PINE.
