Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett urges the newly arrived Australian correspondent Keith Murdoch to break censorship agreements and deliver a secret letter criticising Hamilton's campaign to the British Prime Minister. Together, the two men set in motion a series of events forcing London to finally intervene in the Gallipoli campaign. Tolly is commended for his bravery at Lone Pine, while Dave refuses to get help for chronic illness.
