What your telling me Sir and correct me if I'm wrong, is that the infantry attack on Lone Pine, and our attack on the Nek are diversions.
There not just diversions Major, vital important diversions. Tonight, 25,000 British troops will land here at Suvla Bay. Our attacks are to draw the Turks down on us so the British can get ashore. Sorry I didn't tell you this before, secrecy is vital.
But Sir, the Nek is a fortress. Protected by at least five machine guns at point-blank range.
Yeah, we've considered that Barton. We're gonna hit their trenches with the heaviest barrage of the campaign just before your men go over the top.
