Map of the landing of the British 29th Division at Cape Helles on April 25, 1915 during the Battle of Gallipoli. The front line established by the night of April 26 is shown by the red dash-dot line. The front line reached by the night of April 27 is shown by the red dotted line. This became the "jumping off" line for the First Battle of Krithia.
