  1. That is exactly how it looked when I visited in 1997 - not a soul in sight. Peace and quiet to soak it all up. I would really hate to be there this time of the year with thousands about the place.

  4. It's hard to imagine the horrors that took place there almost 100 years ago. As has been said already

  5. Thanks, Paul, Rodger, Ray and kingsleypark. It is a quiet and beautiful place there now. One of the highlights of our trip there was diving off the boat to a sunken British vessel.

  6. Hi dear friends,
    Last week I visited the Canakkale and Gallipoli. Will add some photos soon.(in "miniafv.blogspot.com) The Anzacs fought come from far away.
    Formed friendships with Turkish soldiers. We respect their graves in Gallipoli. We visit them as well. Friendship is beautiful.
    Greetings from Turkey

  10. Do you mind if I use a couple of your pics on our blog supporting the NZ project to build a 5000 x 54mm figure diorama of Chunuk Bair? http://anzacdiorama.blogspot.co.nz/
