Mates, I wondered to keep going with this, as after a few weeks or so, our Bdes are sent for a rest and would not be in action for some time.

So I'll finish off the battles during early Dec 1917, where many young men meet their deaths or suffered for the cause.

Today, Anzac MD with 1 LH Bde (-) was still at Ayun Kara in reserve with the 2 LHR still with 54 Div. The 2 LH Bde was still fighting around Mulebbis - Bald Hill with the Camel Bde.

Aust MD, with the 3 LH Bde (-) was under attack by a storm Bn of the 15th Ottoman Corps around El Burj, with the 4 LH Bde.

Mates, The raids casualties are shown over two days, not that strange in a night battle, as these raids were. Here is an account I wrote on this raid;

The Raid at Bald Hill 3/4 Dec 1917

On the 3 December after stand to, another raid was ordered to take place that night, Lieutenant Colonel Lee alerted the 17th company, being the strongest company remaining in the Battalion, to move up to post 9, situated in the 3rd Battalion trenches, that afternoon, and the 18th company was alerted to support if needed. The plan was for the company to discover how strongly the enemies position were held, and three officers were attached to inspect the defences and report on them, as the force was only to be in the enemies trenches for 10 minutes before returning. The attached officers were Lieutenant Richard Camm, sent to see how many men could be held in the Turkish trenches, Lieutenant Vic Adolph, to see at what stage the Turks were at in their construction and Lieutenant Edward O’Keefe 18th Company, to check their observation posts.

The attacking company could muster six officers and 100 other ranks (with the three attached officers) to carry out the raid, the foray was to attack from the south, the same direction used on the 29 November, and a similar raid was once more planned by the 6th Light Horse to support, this raid, it was composed from A and C Squadron under Captain Doug Close with five officers and 100 men. Lieutenant Adolph the 4th Anzac Battalion intelligence officer carried out a reconnaissance of the Turkish position in the afternoon and at 7.40 pm the 17th company left its trench moving up a small nullah from post 9 to a form up point within 300 yards of the Turkish line allowing the troops to line the nullah till the artillery fell at H Hour.

At 7.55 pm after a 10 minute bombardment, Captain John Hampton signalled the attack allowing the men time to reach the trenches before the guns would be switched to cut off the Turks escape to the rear, while the Brigades machine guns would support the main attack. The 17th company started to advance in line on a section front in three waves, the Battalion Padre Captain Ignatius Bossence joined with the attacking force setting a fine example to the men, however again things began to go wrong from the start.

The Turks quickly recognized that an attack was coming, and moved out of their trenches into no mans land to escape the worst of the shell fire, which allowed them time to prepare for the attack. The attacking company ran straight into a prepared Turkish defence and a bayonet fight ensued as a line of spider holes were found 50 metres from their front line containing a skirmish line of Turks, they showered the men with bombs inflicting a large number of casualties before they were all killed, still not before disorganizing and delaying the assault. Meanwhile on the left flank the 6th Light Horse found they had been blasted out of their positions by what they believed to be a defective gun, which was short shooting, they lost about 23 men wounded before the barrage lifted disorganizing their attack.

The main Turkish line was then attacked, only the Turks opened with shell fire onto their own position and the cameleers could make no head way against a stiffening Turkish line, which by chance, had missed the intended point of entry and so lost the full benefit of supporting artillery and machine gun fire. The cameleers tried moving along the outer line to find a weak spot to break in and capture the Turkish posts still no where they could gain a foot hold.

 
Adding to their problems that night were two of the three officers attached to look at the Turkish defences, now found themselves wounded during the wild fight along the outer trenches and two sections of the 18th company were committed until they at last gained entry into the objective, which allowed only a brief inspection before the whistle was blown to order the retirement.

With the raid now completed Captain Hampton ordered all troops back to the start point, with the 10 minutes allowed for the raid long passed. When the troops retired machine guns from the 3rd Battalion opened on the enemies defences which prevented the recovery of all the wounded. Captain Hampton stayed to help and his direction of the withdrawal enabled all of the wounded to be recovered with the help of Sergeant Lionel Towner who rescued a number of men in front of the Turkish trenches, they were the last men to return with the Padre who went among the troops and wounded keeping their spirits up, and by 9.40 pm all had returned other then Lieutenant Adolph who stayed to complete a final check on the enemies works before arriving back carrying a wounded man. Only one man was believed left in the Turkish’s trenches and he had been killed and could not be recovered. The Turks still alarmed by the raid continued to shell the area till 10 pm when all fell silent.

The 6th Light Horse to the north had still advanced at H hour plus 10 and reached their objective bayoneting 20 Turks from the 2nd Battalion 57th Regiment (19th Division), where they stayed long enough in the Turkish’s trenches to capture three prisoners from the 57th Regiment and one prisoner from the 1st Battalion 52nd  Regiment (possibly 62nd Regiment) and some rifles before returning with the required information with the loss of one officer (Owen Tooth) and one other rank (Brian Barton) killed and one officer (Norman Dickson) and 22 men wounded.       

The casualties in the 17th company were reported as two other ranks killed (Albert Cox and James Fairbairn) while Corporal Henry Johnson died of wounds on the battlefield and four officers and 32 men were wounded, in the 18th company Sergeant Albert Chard was killed when hit in the head by a piece of shell fragment while waiting in support and 16 men wounded. Captain Graham Shipway the Battalion medical officer worked tirelessly throughout the night dispatching the casualties back to the rear, clearing all the wounded, by 2 am a further four men died of their wounds that night or over the next few days (Bill Bryce, Archie Duncan, Elias Pryor and Harry Punshon).

Defending Bald Hill at this time was the 62nd Turkish Infantry Regiment under Major Nazmi Bey, who reported coming under heavy artillery and machine gun fire around 8.30 pm, when an ambush attack was conducted on them, which they controlled the battle after a counterattack was sent in by the reserves of the Regiment. Facing the 6th Light Horse Regiment were elements of the 2nd Battalion 57th Regiment (19th Div) under Ali Bey to the north of Bald Hill, when their posts were attacked. Post 1 (containing 18 men) was hit hard by shell fire, and post 2 (with 20 men and two machine guns) was to the right near the road, while post 3 was held by 20 men from the 52nd Regiment (possibly 62nd Regiment (20th Div). Ali Bey was in post 1 when the attack began and he at once sent a messenger for the reserves in post 4, however the messenger was killed. Ali Bey then requested help from post 2, who sent half there strength (10 men) to post 1, which now contained around 28 men. The garrison of post 1 was taken by surprise, when the Light Horse found the Turks with there heads down due to the artillery fire, killing or capturing all including Ali Bey, who was reported killed, being shot be a rifle bullet. A reinforcement of 90 men under a Sergeant were dispatch to retake post 1, only to be hit by artillery fire which killed or wounded many of the men and broke up this move allowing the Light Horse to retire with there prisoners.

British Intelligence reports say, the Camel Brigade captured three men from the 57th Turkish Regiment and one from the 62nd Regiment, while the 2nd Light Horse Brigade reported 5 prisoners of the 57th Regiment and 20 men bayoneted.

Today, Anzac MD with the 1 LH Bde was still at Ayun Kara and the 2 LHR returned today, and the Bde will remain there till 17 Dec. The 2 LH Bde was at Esdud and will remain there all month.

Aust MD with the 3 LH Bde (-) was still behind El Burj and would remain there till 10 Dec. The 4 LH Bde was still on the line around Kuddis with the British Infantry facing the Ottoman 19th Infantry Div.

I should mention the Ottoman 8th Army facing us during the months of late Nov and Dec 1917.

At this stage of the war the 8th Army had only one Corps (22nd Corps), and it had the 3rd Div from the coast along the Nahr el Auja and tied in with the 7th Div around Nahr el Auja north of Mulebbis, the new 20th Div continued the line from Mulebbis to around Wilhemina. The 16th Div from around Wilhemina to El Tire, the 54th Div from el Tire to Nalin then the 19th Div from Nalin to Suffa. The 6th Cavalry Regt finished the line to the 3rd Corps (7th Army).
