8th August 1915 (Sunday)

War!

At Gallipoli, the slaughter continues. RIP William George Malone; Harry William Hooper; McKenzie Maxwell;  Cecil Anthony McAnulty; John Henry Adams; Albert Louis Albin; Bertrand Auchterlonie; Harold McClean Avery; Herbert Stanley Back; Thomas Vincent Baker; Andrew Barr; John Robert Baxter;  and so many, many others, including many young Turkish men hidden from google view by my lack of Turkish language skills…

The Battle of Chunuk Bair lasted from August 7th to 19th and claimed 16,000 casualties from the Ottoman and British Empires. [Wikipedia].
