A hot day in Gallipoli, Turkey 40C. The Lone Pine Memorial is at the east end of Lone Pine Cemetery. It commemorates more than 4,900 Australian and New Zealand servicemen who died in the Anzac area. There are 1,167 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery. 504 of the burials are unidentified. Special memorials commemorate 183 soldiers (all but one of them Australian), who were known or believed to have been buried in Lone Pine Cemetery, or in the cemeteries at Brown's Dip.
