GLORIOUS CHARGE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
GLORIOUS CHAKGn \aiCApB. "The Turks' lead was going over us, sing ing ]ike bees. We stripped the packs from our backs, and as the officers' wlusutes blew we hopped up and went oft" at a gallop. Talk about a kangaroo drive or the charge of the Light Brigade. They were not in it. One could; have laughed but for the tragedy of the whole affair- Several French soldiers in blue coats and, red pantaloons, who hacr somcnow go mixed up with us, were charging ahead hold ing their packs in front of their heads. They looked very.comical. Many of the British also joined in the rush.

INDIANS HELP AUSTRALIANS. "Some were killed' and fell in the water. At the top of this ravine an Indian brigade was entrenched- As we streamed over their tren ches "'we .could see them crouching down from the shells and bullets, and their faces were a study. They must have thought me Austra lians had suddenly run amok. Many of them ran out when we had passed, and carried scores of our wouaded back into shelter, x /' Out in. the «p«n a couple of hundred yards ahead of us, the Britifih were standing uy .i& their five-pits. Only a few of our ehaps were able to crowd in alongside of them. The rest fixing '"themselves' flat on their faces behind the parapets and took a breather.\ -

SWIFT ADVANCE OttDESED, "With full packs up our brigade received the hurried order to charge for the foe. The mom ent the leading companies topped the rise, Hell broke loose. Our adjutant, Captain A. H. ! Possinghjmi,. was the first killed, and then the ; men started- to go' down. "Opening up into extended order,- we-went■ /forward at the double. The advance was through a ravine, down which a creek was flowing. The banks on both sides had been scooped out in many places by the Turks, but they had been expelled by the British. Many of our chaps took shelter in these dug outs, as we rushed forward," while; the rest of1 us threw ourselves down flat on the open ground.
BATTLE LEAVES A TRAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
BATTLE LEAVES A TBa^. '' The British must have had a terrible struggle in effecting a landing at Cape Helles. The place was honeycombed with deep pits, with sharp iron spikes at the bottom of them. There was a labyrinth of trenches, and a per fect network of barbed wire. At the time of our lauding the. British and French .forces had succeeded in pushing the Turks about five miles towards Achi Baba. "Pieces of shell cartridge-cases, British hel mets and tunics, French peaked caps and blue J overcoats, bayonets and broken rifles, and heaps | of Turkish wearing apparel littered the ground in all directions. All this "proved the bloody nature of the lighting that had taken place there. "We were-Qrdered to reinforce the British in the firing line. The whole line—French, Brit ish, Indian, New Zealand and Australian troops —was to advance to the assault on Krithia.

TROOPER "BILLY" KELK. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 17 March 1916
TROOPER "BILLY" KELK. In a recent issue of the London "Times" there appeared the follow- ing account of how the chivalrous act of an Australian soldier, who it has since been learned was Trooper W. S. Kelk, late of Dubbo, but now &nbsp; of Netley Hospital, was misunder- stood. The relief corps, consisting of two medical officers, a secretary, an interpreter, and 22 trained nurses, which the Japan Red Cross Society placed at the disposal of the War Office last January for a year's work free of expense, which was al- located to the British Red Cross Hospital at Netley, had left South- ampton on its return to Tokio. One patient, an Australian, threw his overcoat in the mud for them to walk over, but it was immediately picked up by a stout sergeant, who had evidently never heard of Sir Walter Raleigh. [Mr Kelk is well &nbsp; known in Gilgandra, having been en- gaged in the Castlereagh as Liberal &nbsp; organiser.]

*" CORPORAL HITOHEN" iND PRIVATE WRIGLEY. There was a large number of peo ple at the Australian Hall 011 Monday night. It was a soldiers' send-off to Corporal "Bill" Hitch en and. Private "Dick" Wrigley, both on final leave. There were the usual presentations, at which .Mr. A. F. Garlitig presided. • * In\ opening the proceedings, the chairman made eulogistic refer-enc® to the excellent service rendered the recruiting movement in this State by Bill Kitchen. He was the first man in Australia to conceive the idea of route marches. Their utility to the. Empire was shown in the fact that' some 2000 or 3000 men had enlisted, as the result of the lead set by Mr. Hitchen. He had been subject to a lot of criticism, but he had lived it all down, and they in Gilgandra were proud of the part he had played in the Empire's defence. The speaker also paid a tnbute to Dick Wrigley^— the intrepid ck, who, they say, can ride any of tliewaek military horses clown below. find made a nice Mr. Miller. "B...
