On 4 October 1915 the 1/4 Bn was serving as the Garrison of Hill 60 on the Suvla landing battlefront. Although early the previous day saw the position the subject of bombardment and heavy rifle fire on the right the Bn did not return fire but threw a large number of bombs. On the day of the 4 Oct there was no action reported. The War Diary reported that Lieut Gen Sir W Birdwood visited the trenches. Some time that day a sniper fired on the soldiers in the positions. Two soldiers were killed outright - Private Alfred Marlow from Northampton and Private Russell Walter (born Kettering but enlisted in Harpole). Private Percy Lawrence was wounded when a snipers bullet ricochetted and hit him. He was taken to the Field Ambulance Station but was either dead on arrival there or died shortly after. The shooting was witnessed by his friend, Harry Thomas, who survived the war and was able to give the Lawrence family an account of the above events.
