This is Dundee's story of those that served in the First World War, and of the people left at home
9 January 1916
The Gallipoli campaign is abandoned as the last troops leave; leaving historians today divided in their summary of the campaign’s success or otherwise. Records differ but the campaign resulted in approximately half a million casualties, including men sick with typhoid, dysentery and diarrhoea. Gallipoli is commemorated on 25 April each year in New Zealand and Australia and is known as “Anzac Day”.
