When applying for the Gallipoli Medallion Private Turnbull included this from his diary, he had this to say
“landed about 11:30 at ANZAC Cove with the 7th reinforcements …. 6th Informed by our officers in Shrapnel Gully that we were to make big advance at 9pm, moved off at 9pm to the left with all the rifles free of ammunition , met with little opposition till 5am then we were in the midst of hell, with sniping very bad. We loaded our rifles just before daylight and were partly dug in on hill 303 at 4pm….. We made a heavy attack on Chocolate Hill at 3:30am on the 9th, the 13th, 14th & 15th battalions on the right of me made just a faint attack on the left and got cut up badly. I was one of 6 sent out to middle of hay field to draw enemy’s fire, our only cover being stacks of hay, there was only four of us left to join the main body, but 60 of us got cut off and returned into the Turks machine gun fire. Thirty of our chaps were cut down”
Note: It appears he lost his medals but all were returned. The Victory Medal was handed in separately and then returned by the government in 1936
