The campsite is part of the complex. It's clearly not their business focus. The facilities are "tired" and in fact some of the plumbing in gents' toilet is unacceptable.

... down in front of kiwi father and son who instantly took her under their wing as she was unaccompanied (Awesome guys).
The cold started setting in around 10pm so out came the bivvy bag, gloves, beanie and thermals, and there were still lots of empty spaces in the NZ disability stand.
Teresa finally located me at midnight (I think for the last few hours she was actually at a bar somewhere and not on the ...
... a High Court Judge. 2 of them (Blackburn and Roven) probably made it further across the peninsula than any other Anzacs. They returned to their lines after encountering large Turkish reinforcements moving into the area. Roven was married 6 weeks earlier in Egypt, and was photographed at the wedding with his 10 man team. When found killed later in the campaign, he had a diary on him - his "little book for Nellie". Even more poignantly, Nellie (a nurse) pregnant, went to Britain to ...
