Aleppo Pine planted in the Jubilee Year 1965 in memory of departed comrades who served in World War One. 

In the Anzac Section of Gallipoli in 1915, there was a solitary stunted pine growing on a scrubby plateau. The tree was of a species indigenous to the Mediterranean known botanically as Pinus brutia but more popularly called Aleppo Pine. But this particular lone specimen was conspicuous and served to provide a name for the plateau, which thus became known as Lone Pine.
