HC Deb 26 July 1915 vol 73 cc1961-2
91. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the height of Achi Baba is given on the Admiralty chart as 730 feet and on a published War Office map as 709 feet; and whether the approximate height is the one given on the military map in the Tea Room as 591 feet?


The height of Achi Baba as indicated by the contours on the one-inch to one-mile War Office map of the Gallipoli Peninsula is something over 700 feet. The figure 591 on. the same map is not the highest point. The exact height of the highest point is not known, but the War Office map is believed to be substantially correct in this respect.
