The original plan for the ANZACs landing on Z beach was to use 3 beaches, from south to north; Brighton Beach, ANZAC Cove and North Beach. Aerial recon located some 200 Turkish troops with some artillery on the flat space behind Brighton beach, so in the end only the 2 northern beaches had landings. The Turkish troops, from the 77th regiment of the 19th reserve division, did not contest the landings and were ordered to withdraw to the 2nd ridge by Mustafa Kemal at 9.30 am. The difference between Brighton and the 2 other beaches is a bit of a flat plain behind the beach, rather than basically scrubby hills coming directly from the beach shingles. WI some ANZACs landed at Brighton beach on 25 April 1915, perhaps the 2nd wave once the Turkish troops had pulled back?
