Chunuk Bair pine cone

Chunuk Bair pine cone

A mounted pine cone brought back from Chunuk Bair by Meg Craig (nee Malone), the granddaughter of Lieutenant Colonel William Malone. Malone commanded the Wellington Battalion at Gallipoli and was killed during the battle for Chunuk Bair on 8 August 1915.

The engraved plate on the front reads:

Whence came this cone?
From the trench of Malone
On the heights of Chunuk Bair
His courageous band
Held that land
But too many remained -
Buried there
