A party from the 15th Battalion (Queensland, Tasmania) crept out at
night and captured the Turkish trench in front of Quinn's Post. Next
morning they were driven back with many men wounded as they ran for
the Australian line. Lieutenant Francis Armstrong, of Brisbane, was
killed as he tried to climb out of his trench to rescue the wounded.
Chaplain William McKenzie, Salvation Army, recorded his first burial
after arriving on Gallipoli:
It was pleasing to be able to bury the Col.'s body [McKenzie did not
specify who the Colonel was] the first night I was in the firing line
and we buried him at 9 pm in an exposed position and for safety I had
to kneel in a crouching position to conduct the service. He had been
dead a fortnight.
