Gallipoli

Location: Gallipoli, Turkey

Looking towards ANZAC Cove.

ANZAC Cove memorial.

Simpson's grave (including a photo of him and his donkey). Apparently the Turkish soldiers really admired him...and no one wanted to shoot him because all he did was get the injured to medical help. When he was eventually shot in the back, the donkey took the injured soldier on his back to medical help because the donkey knew the way. Very sad. Simpson was born in England but lived in Newcastle when he came to Australia!

The cemetary above ANZAC Cove. The men were so young.

At Lone Pine.

The infamous ANZAC Cove. It was actually steeper than it looks. The hills behind were quite rugged and steep.

One of the many trenches.

Here is the "lone pine" grown from a seed that was found on a soldier's body and sent back to his mother in Australia by the dead soldier's brother. The mother planted the seed and many years later a seed from this tree was sent back to Gallipoli and planted...and this is the tree!

The Turkish soldier's cemetary. The Turks lost way more men than we did...and after all, we were invading their homeland. They were all young too. Very sad.
