September found the British on our left in a consolidated'position, and our front extended from seven to about twelve miles, and as usual, we siecm to naturally retire into the' settled, dreamy methods of siege warfare. The new landing created quite a diversion in Constantinople, and, according to an authority, the Turko-German press there give some interesting- details re garding the new move. The journal in question contributes an article by a German officer, who emphasises the fe rocity of the fighting on the Peninsu la. Several German officers who had fought in other theatres of the cam paign, assert that it is unparalleled by any of their experiences elsewhere. The writer continued: The landing at Suvla liay was undoubtedly a surprise to the Turks, who, probably owing to its being the last week of the Feast of Ramazan, kfcpt'so bad a watch that no body saw the approach of the fleet of transports, w...
