Gallipoli Walker's Ridge

Considering the Gallipoli landscape, Walker's Ridge is looking north. Walker's Ridge is named after Brigadier Harold Bridgwood Walker, commander of the New Zealand Infantry Brigade. The brigade captured the ridge on the first day of the Anzac landing, April 25th and it was held against a strong Turkish attack on 30 June 1915.

Walker’s Ridge Cemetery was begun during the Gallipoli Campaign. It was completed during the 1920s and consists of two plots separated by 18 meters of ground, through which a trench ran. Walker's Ridge Cemetery has 92 burials: 49 Identified, 16 Unknown, and 27 Special memorials.
