The beach at Kapa Tepe, Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey
View of the beach at Gaba Tepe where the allied troops landed in the Gallipoli Campaign, World War One. The view shows dugouts, men, landing craft, and piles of stores. Photographed by an unknown photographer in 1915.
Inscriptions: Verso - : The beach at Kapa Tepe. In the foreground are "dug outs" in which we slept. Away in the distance you can see a warship the "Triumph" and the white gunsmoke from her shells on the hills. Shells aimed at us usually burst where the large ink spot is, but when they came over the little hills under A it was hell. I have marked the end of my dug out with a cross + hold the photo sideways to the light & you will spot it.
