Dardanelles, Gallipoli, Lone Pine, 9 August 1915.Three unidentified 7th Battalion men standing at a bomb stop at the old Turkish firing line in Lone Pine. Note the pine logs remaining from the original trench headcover constructed by the Turks.

Also note the bayonet leaning against the side of the trench more than likely at the ready for some close quarters use and the white patches on the soldiers sleeves to more clearly identify them as allies in the thick of battle. The white patch on the soldier who is leaning over appears to becoming adrift somewhat.  A very famous photo this one.
