Southern Anzac sector. One of the southernmost positions in the Anzac sector, located near the end of Bolton's (Harris) Ridge.
 
Chatham's Post was established in June 1915 when Lieutenant William Chatham of the 5th Light Horse Regiment led a party of 20 men to cover a working party of 200 men from the 6th Light Horse Regiment. Over two nights, the men of the 6th Light Horse dug a new trench and the redoubt at the end was named 'Chatham's Post'.
