2nd Battalion Unit History - 2 May 1915

The first day of May found the battalion still recouperating in the beach with reorganisation completed, but a summons of the staff to brigade indicated an early move, and this took place at 8 a.m. on the following day, when the Second moved up Victoria Gully to a position in support of the R.M.L.I.  Late that evening further orders sent A Coy. Under Dignam and B Coy. Under Pain into the line at the head of the gully, with three casualties during the move.
