    Default Gallipoli 1915-2015. Helles, Lone Pine, Chunuk Bair...ANZAC cove.

    Hey Guys,

    I was just at Gallipoli for the 100th anniversary 2015.
    I can't put in words how amazing it was as a kiwi to be there for the dawn service and then the Chunuk Bair service.
    I had 2 family members fight at Gallipoli. Only 1 came back.
    A.Urquhart was killed in action 6-7/8/15 as part of the Chunuk Bair advance.
    I spent 3 days at Gallipoli and experienced as much as I could of the ridges and Gullies.
    I will upload as many photos as I can over the next few days, I have over 1000.
    I will start with what I found at Chunuk Bair and Helles and Shrapnel Gulley.
    Also a service we held for an unknown soldier that we did in Turkish and English with Aussies and Kiwis.
    We found a Humerous behind Steeles Post and did what we thought was best and laid it to rest where we found it.
    My favourite part of that walk was going deep into the scrub and prickles on table top.
    A kiwi friend found a button, we were all looking for shells.
    I ended up on a cliff face looking down towards out post 2.
    I looked down and sitting half buried was a 303 shell, I was so happy.
    I picked it up and then poked a stick into the ground in the same place about 5cm deep and another shell popped up.
    If I had more time I would've had a really good dig, but I was last and people were calling my name....They were already halfway down.
    Getting out of there was harder than getting in.
    I gave one of the shells to an Aussie mate who was as desperate as I was to find one.
    Unfortunately I didn't find a bayonet, just way too over grown now.
    But I did get bullet shells, shrapnel, bits and bobs that I will try and post over the next few days.
    I'm not sure if the Barbed wire is right??
    There is a few bits in there I'm not sure what they used to be.
    Any identification on all bits will be a great help.
