Centenary of the end of the Battle of Lone Pine Print Page Print this page

An Aleppo Pine was planted to commemorate the Centenary of the end of the Battle of Lone Pine. Four men of Pompey Elliott`s 7th Battalion, including Ballarat`s William Dunstan, were awarded the Victoria Cross.

The Battle of Lone Pine was fought between Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and Ottoman Empire forces during the Gallipoli Campaign of the First World War, between 6 and 10 August 1915. The battle was part of a diversionary attack to draw Ottoman attention away from the main assaults being conducted by British, Indian and New Zealand troops around Sari Bair, Chunuk Bair and Hill 971, which became known as the August Offensive.
