From The Bulletin July 1, 1951:  “On August 6, 1915, a young major led the men of his 4th Battalion, A.I.F., into one of the most outstanding incidents in the history of the attack on Lone Pine, on Gallipoli. A fine, flashing figure of an athlete, dark and lithe, he raced across the ground towards a Turkish sap near Owen’s Gully.  He carried a rifle with a bayonet like the rest of his party and fired from the hip as he went…”  So begins the legend of Iven G. Mackay, who never wavered in the high ideals he embraced as a young man, and who inspired countless numbers of Australians over two World Wars.
