The most north-eastern position held by the British on the Kiretch Tepe range, at the western side of the razorback. After it had been captured on the 8th of August, it was again lost to the Turks, for whom it had been a strongpoint in their defences. It was then recaptured on 15th August and held until the evacuation. It was named after Major. J. Jephson of the 6th Battalion Royal Munster Fusiliers, who was killed in the second attack on the position.

The following map taken from the New Zealanders at Gallipoli (Fred Waite) shows the relationship of Jephson's Post to the Anzac Positions.
