No 2 OUTPOST CEMETERY
UK - 20
AIF - 36
NZ - 34
Unidentified - 62
No. 1 and 2 Outposts were respectively south and north of the Fisherman's Hut. It was near these points that the 7th and 12th Australian Infantry Battalions landed on the 25th April; and on the 30th the Posts were made by the Nelson Company of the Canterbury Infantry Battalion, who buried there some of the Australian dead. 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 near to it. No. 2 Outpost Cemetery was made during the occupation, and four isolated graves were brought in later.
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.
