In the Boer War Dugald Graham was a Lieutenant with the 4th Queensland Imperial Bushmen Contingent. In August 1914 he was commissioned Captain in the 2nd Light Horse and in October was promoted to Major. He landed at Gallipoli on 12 May 1915. The next day his unit was ordered to attack strongly defended Turkish trenches at Quinn's Post that resulted in many AIF casualties. He was killed in action and hastily buried. Five days later his body was exhumed and re-buried at Pope's Hill Cemetery.

25 soldiers named on the Roll of Honour died during the Gallipoli campaign.
