Lennox H 2316 (M Aug 7th 1915)

Informant states that "On August 6th 1915 at midnight at Gallipoli Peninsula, Lennox was killed.  An attack was made on some German trenches, which were named "German Officers' trenches" as officers were seen massing there at one time, which were not taken and on No Man's Land he was killed.  They never got into German trenches, so Lennox could not have been taken prisoner, but he was not seen after the attack.  Two men gave this information and say they belonged to a draft of 150.  They left Mellisuine on June 17 1915, landed on arrival at Gallipoli climbed the hill, and made the attack, and next morning only 50 out of the 150 draft answered the roll call.
