100 YEARS AGO
AT THE DARDANELLES AMSTERDAM, Sunday. A Turkish communiqué states: The enemy on Friday, after artillery preparation, made land and sea attacks at Anafarta against our right wing near Kireachmepe, and also three attacks on our centre southwards of Asoakdere. All were entirely unsuccessful, and we repulsed the enemy with severe losses. Our artillery repeatedly hit a cruiser and damaged a transport and tug. There was repeated bombthrowing on our right wing.
