Turning now to where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps were perched upon the cliffs of SARI BAIR, I must begin by explaining that their role at this stage of the operation was first, to keep open a door leading to the vitals of the Turkish position, secondly, to hold up as large body as possible of the enemy in front of them so as to lessen the strain at CAPE HELLES.  The Corps Commander was aware that he was to gain as mush ground as possible but he was also well aware that it was not considered probable that he would be able unassisted to undertake any serious advance.
