Photo from the exhibition

The Great War exhibition has a side room with photos from the Gallipolli campaign. Some are official. Others were taken by sneaky soldiers smuggling cameras onto the Peninsula and surriptiously taking pictures. The information boards use a mix of commentary and verbatim to describe what happened day by day. It is another visceral experience with the conditions vividly described. The dead are listed for each day of the campaign.

Rest in peace Trooper Alexander D McKay, greatuncle on my Mum’s father’s side.
