The Line Breaks

The Line Breaks

Enemy pressure increased on this new line at Canea on 26 May and by nightfall enemy parties had infiltrated behind the lines. Further withdrawal was necessary during the night and a new line was established early on 27 May on 42nd Street – a dirt road running north and south about one mile west of Suda township. Enemy aircraft attacked the Anzac positions and ground troops began to work round the southern flank, threatening the road of retreat.
