THE LONE PINE

"Nothing was as bad as Lone Pine"  - Lieutenant General Leslie Morshead.  Lone Pine veteran.  Commander of the Australian 9th Division, 'Rats' of Tobruk.

The Battle of Lone Pine took place between August 6 and 10 in 1915 during the eight month Allied Gallipoli Campaign. Known as Plateau 400 or Lone Pine at Gallipoli, the fortified ridge position was marked by a single pine tree at the top. 

Sgt. Keith McDowell of the Australian 23rd. Battalion retrieved a cone from the actual Lone Pine tree’s blasted branches. Sgt. McDowell carried the cone for the rest of the war and on his return to Australia gave it to his aunt at Grassmere near Warrnambool in Victoria.

In June 1933 a tree propagated from the cone was planted at the Shrine of Remembrance in the Kings Domain in Melbourne. This iconic Lone Pine lasted for decades but was removed in 2012 after storm damage and failed health.

MUD - October 28th, 2022

                           Following heavy rain visitiors pease take note:

Mud is a sticky mixture of solid material with a liquid, and especially water.  Currently here is plenty of mud at the Hazelwood Cemetery.  Moreover, the ground is saturated following regular rainfalls.

 

By way of public safety, the Hazelwood Cemetery Trust is very conscious in asking visitors to take care when walking across sodden grass surfaces.  A sensible approach is most appropriate.
