Mehmetçiǧe Saygı Anıtı

Turkish:
"Biz Çanakkale Yarımadasının Türklerle savaşarak ve binlerce insanımızı kaybederek kahraman Turk milletine ve onun essiz vatan sevgisine duyduǧumuz büyük takdir ve hayranlıkla ayrıldık. Bütün Avustralyalılar Mehmetçiǧi kendi evlatları gibi sever Onum mertliǧi, vatan ve insan sevgisi siperlerdeki dayanılmaz heybet ve cesareti, bütün. Anzakları hayran bırakan yurt sevgisi insanlığın örnek alacaǧı büyük hasletlerdir. Mehmetçiǧe minnet ve saygılarımla..." — Avustralya Genel Valisi Lord Casey
English:
Despite battling against the Turks at the Canakkale peninsula and loosing thousands of our people, we left with great admirance for the Turkish people and how patriotic they were. All Australians love the Mehmetcik. Their greatness, their love for people as a race, their love for their own people, and their unimaginable courage and glory... The love that Turkish people displayed for their country is a great example for man kind, that left Australians stunned.
To the Turkish Soldiers, with gratefulness and regards,
Viceroy Lord Casey.
