Hi Philip,

They (Territorial RWF bttns) landed at Suvla Bay on the 9th, and were part 158th Brigade advancing across the salt lake on the 10th August to relieve the 159th Brigade that had spearheaded the initial advance. Casualties were heavy and they did not reach their objective by the end of the day.

The latest Pen and Sword Battleground Gallipoli book, Suvla August Offensive, by Stephen Chambers, describes the attack on Scimitar Hill that involved the 5th, 6th and 7th Royal Welsh Fusiliers.
