The Battle of Gully Ravine was fought at Cape Helles (Gallipoli peninsula). The attack at Gully Ravine and preceding the 3rd Battle of Krithia had many things in common with the Western Front prevailing. Other Allied attack at Helles was mostly unsuccessful. However, the Battle of Gully Ravine was different. It was successful, but the Allies had many casualties.
The Battle of Gully Ravine began on 28 June (10:45 a.m.). Before the battle, the heavy bombardment lasted two days. It started with the raid to capture Boomerang Redoubt (Gully Spur).
Soon after the preliminary raid, the advance began. The 2nd Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers and the 2/10th Gurkha Rifles advanced quickly. They reach the point, called "Fusilier Bluff" that was located 0.5 miles on the enemy territory. This should become the most northern point that Allied controlled at Helles.
On the other side, in the ravine, 1st Battalion, Border Regiment didn’t advance very well, because Ottoman forces were protected from the naval bombardment. Their point was well protected, and known as "Border Barricade". On the right side, the battle didn’t go as planned for the British. The 156th Brigade was massacred because they didn’t get the support. The Ottoman forces killed 800 soldiers (1.400 casualties in total) of the 156th Brigade. Some battalions had to be merged with others.
The British Empire had at their disposal 20.000 soldiers. They lost 3.800 of them. On the other side, the Ottoman Empire had 13.000 soldiers. They lost 6.000. The Battle of Gully Ravine ended with the British victory. In June (end of the month) General Hunter-Weston departed his British VIII Corps command.
