Description:
Many people don't realize that the Gallipoli campaign was not just about one single attack on the day of the 25/4/1915 but a tragic series of events which in the end saw no gain after 9 months. In the first few months scrub fires were lit by both sides in order to try to burn the enemy out of their strong holds. While under heavy attack men had to defend against scrub fires with only wet sacks, picks and shovels as water was scarce.
