The staff at this hotel were really helpful, the rooms lovely...
Our tour guide Hassan was passionate about his tours making Gallipoli his Wife, and Troy his Darling.... If you manage to have him as a guide, you will be enthralled.

This was named because the Turks fired some shrapnel rounds into the area when some of the first Anzacs came through here chasing the few ...
... br> Our next soldier was Malani’s adopted fella: Private Bobby Moir from Canley Vale in NSW, he was 24 years old when he died between 7-12 August 1915. Through the National Archives I found a note from the Red Cross with an inquiry from PTE Moir’s mother – about whether he was promoted and if he was ‘mentioned in dispatches’.

Stands are already being set up for the dawn service around the Battlefields and we are all getting ready for our big day on the water in the cove. As mum and I had no relatives to visit on ...
