Saturday 11 April

Attended the exhibition on the Ross Mountain Battery at Gallipoli, in the Drill Hall on Church Street. There was a lot of material there, varying from the humorous to the tragic. I was amazed to learn that the Gallipoli peninsula is the same size as the island of Lewis & Harris. The battle for Gallipoli (Çanakkale in Turkish) began on 25 April 1915, and lasted most of the rest of that year. It was lost by the Allied forces, although the losses to the Turks were some four times greater.
