The Fighting

The Gallipoli campaign, an attempt to get around the trenches of the Western Front and to open a winter route to Russia, effectively began on 19 February 1915 with a naval bombardment of Turkish forts guarding the entrance to the Dardanelles channel that led to Istanbul. On 18 March the attempt to sail past the forts and up the Straits failed and on 25 April British and ANZAC landings were made on the Gallipoli peninsula. Despite further landings on 6 August at Suvla Bay, the campaign failed and the Allies withdrew at the end of the year. Losses on each side are estimated to be a quarter of a million.

It was as a result of this campaign that the Australians earned the nickname 'The Diggers' having been told by the C in C that all they had to do on ANZAC beach where they had landed was to 'dig, dig, dig'.

It did not work out like that.
