Gallipoli Returners Tour: May 2019

Gallipoli tours for people who have already been, but who want to explore more detailed aspects. This year it is the Royal Naval Division. This unique body of men were flung into action at Gallipoli with inadequate training and no artillery. Created from a mixture of naval reservists and volunteers on the outbreak of war they had a uniquely gifted and eccentric set of officers which included literary luminaries, famous musicians, poets and humourists. We will explore the diversion at Bulair, the doomed landing at Y beach, the deployment of the Naval Brigade to Anzac where they held the line in early May, The First, Second and Third Battles of Krithia, the Battle of 12/13 July and the final evacuation in January 1916.
