1R on Ro4u8.I un spppir. The information given below is in ampliflcstion of previous 1115 information ooncerning the water supply in the neighbourhood of AnZAC. The source of the information is two Creek peasants who heve beon taken on as guides. They are uneducated and cannot reed e sap but. are intelligent. The rrevious infor ation dated May 27th. 1915 was given by one of theso men. In general their inforwation tends to show that :- The country between kutchuk and Biyuk Anaferte and the sea has abundance of water principally tm from wells. No water is actually to be found on Seri Bair (Hill s7!) on its higher slopes. There is good water betseen Biyuk Anafarta and Boghali and at the latter place. Also at Eski Keui. To sum up it appears that the sater question even in July should not be a serious one, should ce make an edvance from our present position. 1. The information concerning the well mentioned in ist. Pare. of noto of May a7th. (Sd. 263 Z e approx.) is oorroborated. This well is apparently fed by a stream (6 - 7 yards broad end about ls deep at present) which rises in the Kizlar Dagh. It should wore properly be called a reservoir perhaps. This is the guides speak of as being capable of providing sater fer ie,000 sen (but this is probably merely figurative) The water in the Topalin Mezar Dere is brackish and not good cept for animals, but the country from the Salt Leke up to Kutchuk Anafarta consists of many faras, cach one of chich has one or two wells of good drinking cater. lii. The water at Kutchuk Anafarta is plentiful. There are t or5 wells of good water, about 20 - 30 feet deep and containing about 15 feet of water. They are 3 - 4 feet in dismeter. Thore are also e ssall reservoirs fed by a stream from which the water is teken off by e lines of pipes and there are e taps at which to draw weter. The water rne off through the village. iv. Between kutchuk and Biyuk Anafarte the Asha Dere runs. Abeut half way between the two places the road crosses this river by e bridge. Ten minutes above this bridge are sose encient reservoirs (e to 10 built of stone, about 6 feet in dismeter, and 7 or s feet deep. Here the river is about lo feet broad and la inches deep, but it disapreers into the sandy seil before it roaches the bridge. About 1o minutes below the bridge is an excellent well. There is a Persian water whool here worked by a donkey to wator the fare near by. All the country betseen Bjyuk Anafarta and the sea is dotted over thmany farms, each of which has one or two wells. In fact water is ntiful. (i.e., all along country roads through which the Inam Chai (Aghil Dere/ is sheen to run. Informants speak of there being wells every lco yards or so, but this is no doubt a figure of speech). Informants state there is running water in the gullies at the foot of the hills between here and Kutchuk Ansfarta (w Hills). vi. There are 8 or s wells in the houses in Biyuk Aneferte, but the principal supply is brought froa the foot of Sari Tope (about à mile) by seans of a pipe (diameter about e inches). Tho water is brought from a spring, and after filling a spall reservoir in the village, the overflow runs off and joins the Aghil Deresi. vii. on sari Bari there is no water. viii.At Dagchekeui there are 3 or 4 wells. i. The system or drawing water from the wells is thet of the Fgyrtian 'shaduf. g At intervals of about of an hour there are welle (4) between Fiyuk is arta and Boghali. xi There is an excellent big well in Boghali and the weter et and near Eski Keui is plontiful, the latter distriet being composed of many farms. Hano farm is especially sentioned as providing good and plentiful water. The spring oalled Panachja (the spring oi the Virgin MaryX which is to the west of Eski Keui (on Kaba Tepe road) supplied water to is,00o pilgrins to the shrine, during three days, according to informant.
zii. 4killa Lisan and neichbourhood has a large supply of water from springs and well ziii', Uzundere to Silvili but little water but good supply at latter place Ziv 'Taifurkeui has a large rater supply. In the village there aro soveral fountains and there are springs in tho neighbourhood. il this district up to Yeni Keui is rich in streams and wolls: Aray Corps Headquarters 7th. July, 1915.

INTELLIGENCE NOTE ON ROADS, WATER SUPPLY, etc.  7/7/15

 

The information given below is in amplification of previous 
information concerning the water supply in the neighbourhood of 
ANZAC.
The source of the information is two Greek peasants who have 
been taken on as guides.  They are uneducated and cannot read a map
but are intelligent.
The previous information dated May 27th. 1915 was given by one
of these men.
In general their information tends to show that :-

1. The country between Kutchuk and Biyuk Anafarta and the sea has
abundance of water principally xx from wells. 

2. No water is actually to be found on Sari Bair (Hill 971) on its 
higher slopes.

3. There is good water between Biyuk Anafarta and Boghali and at
the latter place. Also at Eski Keui.

To sum up it appears that the water question even in July should 
not be a serious one, should we make an advance from our present position.

1.  The information concerning the well mentioned in 1st. Para. of 
note of May 27th. (Sq. 263 Z 6 approx.) is corroborated. This well is 
apparently fed by a stream ( 6 - 7 yards broad and about 18" deep at 
present) which rises in the Kizlar Dagh. It should more properly
be called a reservoir perhaps. This is the guides speak of as being 
capable of providing water for 10,000 men (but this is probably merely
figurative)*

11. The water in the Topalin Mezar Dere is brackish and not good 
except for animals, but the country from the Salt Lake up to Kutchuk 
Anafarta consists of many farms, each one of which has one or two wells 
of good drinking water. 

111. The water at Kutchuk Anafarta is plentiful.  There are 4 or 5 wells 
of good water, about 20 - 30 feet deep and containing about 15 feet of 
water. They are 3 - 4 feet in diameter. There are also 4 small 
reservoirs fed by a stream from which the water is taken off by 4 lines
of pipes and there are 4 taps at which to draw water. The water runs off
through the village. 

1v. Between Kutchuk and Biyuk Anafarta the Asha Dere runs. About 
half way between the two places the road crosses this river by a bridge. 
Ten minutes above this bridge are some ancient reservoirs ( 6 to 10 ) 
built of stone, about 6 feet in diameter, and 7 or 8 feet deep. Here 
the river is about 10 feet broad and 18 inches deep, but it disappears
into the sandy soil before it reaches the bridge. 
About 10 minutes below the bridge is an excellent well. There is 
a Persian water wheel here worked by a donkey to water the farm near by. 
All the country between Biyuk Anafarta and the sea is dotted over 
with many farms, each of which has one or two wells. In fact water is 
plentiful. (i.e., all along country roads through which the Inam Chai 
(Aghil Derey is shown to run. Informants speak of there being wells
every 100 yards or so, but this is no doubt a figure of speech). 

v. Informants state there is running water in the gullies at the foot
of the hills between here and Kutchuk Anafarta ( W Hills).

vi. There are 6 or 8 wells in the houses in Biyuk Anafarta, but the 
principal supply is brought from the foot of Sari Tepe (about 3/4 mile) 
by means of a pipe (diameter about 6 inches). The water is brought 
from a spring, and after filling a small reservoir in the village, the 
overflow runs off and joins the Aghil Deresi. 

vii. On Sari Bari there is no water. 

viii. At Dagchekeui there are 3 or 4 wells. 

ix. The system or drawing water from the wells is that of the Egyptian 
"shaduf". 

(pencil drawing of shaduf - see original)

x. At intervals of about 1/4 of an hour there are wells (4) between Biyuk
Anafarta and Boghali. 

xi. There is an excellent big well in Boghali and the water at and near 
Eski Keui is plentiful, the latter district being composed of many farms. 
Hano farm is especially mentioned as providing good and plentiful water. 
The spring called Panachia (the spring of the Virgin MaryX which is 
to the west of Eski Keui (on Kaba Tepe road) supplied water to 15,000 
pilgrims to the shrine, during three days, according to informant. 

 

xii.  Killa Liman and neighbourhood has a large supply of water 
from springs and wells
xiii.  Uzundare to Silvili but little water but good supply at latter 
place.
xiv.  Taifurkeui has a large water supply. In the village there 
are several fountains and there are springs in the neighbourhood:
All this district up to Yeni Keui is rich in streams and 
wells:

My Dear Colonel,
I have no desire to embark 
upon a controversy with Maj Edmonds 
but the facts are (a) that I was 
present during the whole of the interview 
between Maj Edmonds & Col 
Braithwaite (b) that he never told 
Braithwaite that you could not 
spare him but said that you had sent 
him over here to see about the job.
(c) Braithwaite said asked if he had 
any knowledge of mining work &
he said he had none but that he lived 
in Broken Hill (d) that his whole 
attitude & talk was of a man after
a job (e) that he asked Braithwaite
at the end if he had any objection to him
(Edmonds) going on to see Pridham about
it. (f) that Braithwaite can be
applied to confirm any of the above if 
necessary.
The above is my recollection of the interview
Yours Sincerely
A Steinpeiler

MEMORANDUM

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST GAS POISONING

In order to dissipate poisonous gas clouds you will be 
issued with spraying Machines in the proportion of 4
Sprayers to each Infantry Brigade and Mounted Rifles
Brigade, and 3 to each Light Horse Brigade. 

Instructions for the use of these Sprayers are
enclosed in each box, but they appear to be the ordinary
ones in use for spraying fruit trees, of which no doubt many
of the men have a knowledge: but you should ensure that
several men in each unit are trained in the use and care
of the machines. 

A proportion of chemicals for the use in the sprayers
is also being issued to you.
The proportion of each is as follows:-
SODIUM HYPOSULPHITE         6 lbs.
SODIUM CARBONITE                 1/4 lb.
WATER                                            3 gallons.

GLYCERINE is not essential, but if used, 2 ounces
should be added to above mixture. 
The machines should be kept constantly filled and ready
for use, and the liquid sprayed into the advancing cloud of
gas as soon as it is within reach.
