Sec. Lieut. E. M. BUCKLEY. DIED OF WOUNDS. Second-Lieutenant Edmund Maurice Buckley, who died on Augugt 12tb, at Alexandria, of wounds received in action at the Dardanelles on August 10th. was the only son of Sir Edmund and Lady Buckley, and grandson of the baronet of that name. He was educated at Chel- tenham College, afterwards going to Owen's College, Manchester, to study engineering, and thence to the Humber Works, Coventry, for a similar purpose. He left Coventry last September in order to train at the Public Schools Corps, Epsom. He was given a com- mission in the 7th Royal Welsh Fusiliers in November last, and offered himself for active service. Lieut. Buckley was much loved by the men of his platoon, 32 of whom came from Barmouth. He was of extremely fine physique, and stood well over six feet in height. The greatest sympathy is felt in the neighbourhood with Sir Edmund and Lady Buckley, who have resided in the town for many years.

I How the 7th Fought. I From letters that have been sent from the Dardanelles, we are now able to give a fairly connected story of the part played by the gaUant county Territorials of Montgomeryshire and Merioneth in the important operations at Suvla Bay. The object of these operations, in which a large new Army was engaged, was to attack the Turks in the rear of their strong positions on the heights of Acbi Baba and Kili Bahr, to the north of Suvla Bay. For this purpose the British force already established at Helles and Anzac acted in concert. The country in the region of Su via Bay is of a terribly difficult nature—with sheer precipices in places, narrow valleys and ravines partly of bare sandstone and partly covered with scrub. The centre of the bay is sandy and flat, with a long causeway of sand which separates the sea from a large salt lake now dry and covered with cake mud. Beyond the lake the ground rises slowly to a plat- eau of from 500 to 700 feet. The causeway and the lake appear to have played an important part in the work of the Seventh. The force of which the regiment formed a part con- sisted of a division, and their advance lay across the causeway and along one of the shores of the dried up lake. On landing they were shelled by the Turks and several men were killed and woun- ded. The regiment, however, advanced with great gallantry, but the further in- land they went the stronger became the enemy's opposition. When they bad advanced about a mile along the lake, the Turks, who bad gathered large groups of snipers, opened a terrific rifle, shrapnel and big shell fire. The Seventh never wavered, but advanced beyond the first line of British trenches. March- ing in open order or doubling in knots, they were fully exposed, and suffered heavily in casualies in officers and men. The advance over the low ground in the direation of the plateau defended by the Turks was continued with unshaken resolution, and a fine spirit was shown by both officers and men. The machine gun section of the regiment took up its position in a cottage abuting the lake and subsequently the little citadel was sand-bagged by the Engineers. The fighting on the second day, Tues- day, was of a desperate character, and the day is described as the hottest in the experience of the Seventh since their baptism of fire. The Turkish snipers have been particularly touble- some and have accounted for a large number of the killed and wounded of the Seventh. Of the machine gun section of thirty men, four have been killed and six wounded. The total of killed and wounded out of the 750 men forming the regiment during the first week's fighting isi according to one estimate, 60 killed and 300 wounded. During the first week the whole British force advanced a considerable distance, and gained possession of a com- plete semi-circle of the bay. But, as the official statement of the Press Bureau states, the whole objective of the operations has not yet been achieved,
