Gallipoli

Frank Dunne: Have another drink.

Archy Hamilton: Whiskey doesn't make you look old.

Frank Dunne: Oh, doesn't it just? Have you seen my dad? I know he looks like a wreck, but he's really 35.

Frank Dunne: [to Archy] The thing I can't stand about you, mate, is you're always so bloody cheerful.

Camel Driver: [talking about the war] How did it start?

Archy Hamilton: Don't know exactly, but it was the German's fault.

Army Doctor: Teeth aren't all that good.

Snowy: Supposed to shoot the enemy mate, not bite them.

Billy: Oh, be in it. The girls go wild over a uniform.

Barney: Yeah?

Billy: In your case I don't think anything would help but you might as well give it a go.

Major Barton: Marker flags? Who told him there were marker flags?

Lt. Grey: I heard someone say they'd seen one sir.

Major Barton: Who? WHO?

Lt. Grey: I'm not sure sir.

Major Barton: Grey, you bloody idiot! Nobody got further than ten yards!

Frank Dunne: Why don't you go above Robinson's head sir?

Major Barton: To General Gardner, go like the wind!

Major Barton: [into a telephone] Barton, sir.

Col. Robinson: [into a telephone] Barton, I don't care what your watches say, mine says they should've gone 3 minutes so send them.

Major Barton: Sir, do you know that they're back in the trenches.

Col. Robinson: I know that Barton but I still say you must go!

Major Barton: [to the soldiers] All right men... we're going. But I want you to remember who you are. You are the 10th Light Horse! Men from Western Australia. Don't forget it. Good luck.

Major Barton: What your telling me Sir and correct me if I'm wrong, is that the infantry attack on Lone Pine, and our attack on the Nek are diversions.

Col. Robinson: There not just diversions Major, vital important diversions. Tonight, 25,000 British troops will land here at Suvla Bay. Our attacks are to draw the Turks down on us so the British can get ashore. Sorry I didn't tell you this before, secrecy is vital.

Major Barton: But Sir, the Nek is a fortress. Protected by at least five machine guns at point-blank range.

Col. Robinson: Yeah, we've considered that Barton. We're gonna hit their trenches with the heaviest barrage of the campaign just before your men go over the top.

Artillery Officer: By the time we've finished here, there won't be a Turk within miles.

Col. Robinson: The Turks can keep us pinned down at ANZAC forever. This new British landing is our only hope. We must do what we can to make it succeed. Because of it does succeed, we'll have Constantinople with a week, and knock Turkey out of the war.

Archy Hamilton: G'day.

Mary: G'day.
