Anniversary of Withdrawal from Gallipoli

25th May 2020

The evacuation, which was planned and executed from 22 November 1915, is often forgotten. Troops were progressively moved without arousing the suspicions of the Turkish troops until the last troops left the Anzac Cove area 104 years ago today.

“It was a gruelling and costly campaign, with more than 26,000 Australian casualties. The impact of the campaign was felt across Australia, with many having a relative or friend who served, some of who never returned.”
