It's just before 3am and the first wave of the ANZACS covering force is about to land. 15,000 young men from WA, SA and QSL have already climbed down battleships into landing boats, and pulled into shore by battleships.
2.5km from shore the steamboats cast of from battleships and continue of onto their specific landing. In the still pitch black the steamboats shift gradually to the north.
As they come to the shore, the towline of the 9th battalion crosses behind the 10th battalion boats and the landong formation is lost.
Around 4:15am the landing boats cast off to row the final metres to the shore line. A flash of sparks escapes from one of the steamboat funnels. Almost immediatly a beacon is lit on on land illuminating the scene.
It's 4:25am and men from the 9th and 10th battalions and landing under a hail of Ottoman gunfire at what will be now known as Anzac Cove. Bullets spray the water and splinter theb boast as they reach the shore . Men are injured or already dead, slumped in the boats.
