|Quinn's Post Cemetery is
north of Lone Pine, on the road to Hill 60, almost due east
of Anzac Cove.
Quinn's Post was established on the
afternoon of the 25 April by a New Zealand machine-gun crew.
In the coming months, the post was held by a number of
different Australian and New Zealand units and was the
subject of incessant attacks and continual hand-to-hand
fighting with the Turkish post opposite, who knew it as 'Bomba
Sirt' (Bomb Ridge). The post was named from Major Hugh Quinn
of the 15th Battalion, Australian Infantry, who was killed
there during a fierce attack on 29 May. Major Quinn is
buried in Shrapnel Valley Cemetery.
The original cemetery was made after
the Armistice by the concentration of 225 isolated graves,
all unidentified, into Rows E to I. Rows A to D were added
later. The graves from Pope's Hill Cemetery, and six other
graves found later, were brought into a plot, at the
north-east end. Pope's Hill Cemetery was at the foot of
Pope's Hill, where the track turned up to Quinn's Post. The
hill was named from Lt. Col. H. Pope, then commanding the
16th Australian Battalion, which reached it on 25 April.
Special memorials record the names of 64 soldiers, most of
them Australian, who were known or believed to have been
buried in Quinn's Post Cemetery or Pope's Hill Cemetery.
