The 53rd (Welsh) Division, with 5, 6, 7 RWF and 1 Herefords in 158 Brigade, landed unopposed at Suvla Bay. On the 11th they moved into the trenches. There they remained until shortly before evacuation. Along with the others they suffered from the heat, the flies and disease, so that numbers dwindled steadily. At the end of November the temperature plummeted and snow set in. On 11 December the division started to embark for Egypt.
