Day 3 - British Landings Cape Helles - Krithia

We begin our look at Gallipoli by focussing on the landings on 25th April 1915. We start on the British sector, seeing where the River Clyde landed the men of the 29th Division on V Beach, Seddul Bair, and the nearby V Beach Cemetery. We then move on to Lancashire Landing, where the 1st Lancashire Fusiliers won six V.C.s before breakfast. (This visit requires some walking as the roads to the beach are not accessible by coach.) At X Beach we see where HMS Implacable landed 2nd Royal Fusiliers, and have a picnic lunch before we look at the ground fought over by the British in the second phase of the campaign.

Day 4 - ANZAC Beach - Lone Pine

Continuing with our look at the 25th April landings we move north to ANZAC, where the Australians and New Zealanders landed. We visit ANZAC itself, spending the morning walking along the landing beach and seeing the battlefield and nearby military cemeteries. Picnic lunch at Lone Pine, where we look at the Australian attack and see the Lone Pine Memorial and Cemetery. We see where Albert Jacka became the first Australian to win the V.C. in WWI, and go to the Nek, where the Australian Light Horse suffered heavily in the August offensives – as graphically illustrated in the film ‘Gallipoli’. The day ends on the New Zealand battlefield at Chunuk Bair, seeing preserved Turkish trenches.

In the morning we go up to Suvla Bay, seeing where some of the first British ‘Pals’ battalions came into action in August 1915. Here we study the landings and also look at the history of the ‘Lost Battalion’, the 1/5th Norfolks: the men from the Sandringham Royal estate who disappeared during the fighting at Suvla. We also visit the new Suvla Bay Museum in Anafarta. A picnic lunch will be available.
