No.2 Outpost Cemetery is
a small cemetery within 100 metres of New Zealand No.2
Outpost Cemetery, on the east side of the Anzac-Suvla road
near Embarkation Pier Cemetery.
No 1 and 2 Outposts were made by
Nelson Company of the Canterbury Infantry Battalion on 30
April, for the burial of some of those killed when the 7th
and 12th Australian Infantry Battalions landed nearby on 25
April. No 2 Post was the scene of heavy fighting at the end
of May and it was one of the starting points for the Battle
of Sari Bair. It contained the best well in Anzac and the
16th Casualty Clearing Station and the New Zealand Dental
Corps clinic were established close by. No 2 Outpost
Cemetery was made during the occupation.
