The Shell Green Cricket Match
On 17 December a game was held on the site now known as ‘Shell Green’ as it was the only piece of flat ground. The game was played as a diversionary tactic during preparations for the evacuation. The game was abandoned after Turkish shells landed close by. The Shell Green cemetery is located near Artillery Road which is now the primary route for personnel who are moving from the ANZAC Cove Dawn Service to Lone Pine.
