Gallipoli powerpoint

  1. 1. Today, September 28th nothing unusual to report today, just an ordinary day of shelling bombing and sniping.
  2. 2. A Gallipoli nurse with a kitten mascot, born in the trenches Every night there are two or three deaths, sometimes five or six; its just awful flying from one ward into another … each night is a nightmare, the patients’ faces all look so pale with the flickering ship’s lights. [Ella Tucker, in Bassett, Guns and Brooches, p.44]
  3. 3. Arrival of the first sisters on Lemnos Island.
  4. 4. Australian sisters on board the SS Mooltan

  8. 8. Abdul had a gun that fired on ANZAC cove. We called it Beechy Bill.
  9. 9. The ANZACS called every Indian “Johnny” and treated him like a brother, with the consequences that the Indians liked them even more… I often saw parties of Australians and New Zealanders sitting in the lines, eating chupatties and talking to the men. Major HM Alexander.
  10. 10. Bury the body ~ it has served it’s ends Mark the spot but ‘On Gallipoli”. Let it be said “He died”. Oh! Hearts of friends If I am worth it, keep my memory.
  11. 11. Some flower that blooms beside the Southern foam May blossom where our dead Australians lie, And comfort them with whispers of their home: And they will dream beneath the alien sky Of the Pacific Sea. Lester Lawrence: ANZAC Poet
