Casualty Form – Active Service
HMT Lutzow – Proceeded to join M.E.F. Gallipoli – 15th May 1915
20th May 1915
6th Light Horse acting as infantry without their horses landed at Gallipoli. Deployed on defensive activities on the far right of the front line. Left the peninsular 20th December 1915
LAST NIGHT AT GALLIPOLI
6th Light Horse A Squad.
2nd Brigade A.F.F.
19th December 1915
With the highest of hopes of a holiday soon I scribble this my last scrawl from Gallipoli. Soon the last few men shall be withdrawn. Am keeping communication (per telephone) between the firing line and Head Quarters until the last moment when we finally evacuate this position. How does that strike you and other Australians. For the past week this has been going steadily ahead; every night men have been sent away until now the final night has arrived and our first party “A” left at five p.m. and then “B” left at nine p.m. and we the Rear Guard “C” Party may withdraw from firing line any time now as it is almost eleven o’clock.
It will be awfully funny if we manage to leave the firing line without the Turks knowing it. The uncertainty and suspense is somewhat trying as we do not know exactly how much the enemy know of our movements. It seems though, that we may be able to get away without fighting “Rear Guard Action.” It would be a pretty hapless fight; something like occupying these trenches in opposition to the crowd in the Turks, would make you laugh. But it shall not be long now before we make tracks for the beach and incidentally the boats. To go to the usual landing place would take us too long so boats will be in waiting a few hundred yards along from our B[-?] Post.
Wishing you perfect – in all – – – my last epistle to you from Gallipoli after seven months in the firing line.
Signaller Corp Ed. Dudley M. Marsh.

P & O S.S. Beltana.
Not until 0205 (i.e. five minutes past 2 a.m.) on December 20th did I disconnect my telephone and slinging it on my back with other equipment and four Mills bombs in pockets, make tracks from firing line with No.2 “C” Party, starting from Wilsons Lookout, at eight minutes past two. T’was a regular up hill and down dale until at last “X” depot was reached. Then we manned Gun Ridge lying in moonlight concealed by the bushes. When the last of all firing line parties, “C” 1, 2, and 3 had passed “X” depot and there was not a man between the enemy and ourselves on Gun Ridge, then we the Rear Guard Party retired for the beach. Ten minutes later we were crossing the beach in two’s and walking along a pier made of bags of sand etc and boarding Navy Cutters. Two or three minutes after arrival at beach the steam pinnace left with the last men to evacuate the position from Gaba Tepe on Gallipoli. That I was one of the very last party, 20 men altogether, to turn our backs upon the Turks and make for the boats, I am very proud. At the same time there is nothing to brag about still the fact remains that had the enemy known anything then we would have had a lively and exciting time. Upon this the final night there was not a casualty. We had left set rifles in the trenches so that after leaving the firing line these kept going off and so the Turks believed we were still there. Truly this evacuation without loss is almost as great as the landing.
