I don't bore you by adding a lot of informatio about the history of Gallipoli, if you are interested you can

find information on the net. This time I will show you Çanakkale, the place where Gallipoli

Company set in. Unfortunately, there are less photos with low solution.

Scenery from Kilitbahir Castle





You mount the castle from these ladders but they are very dangerous and horrible. I mounted but I don't

know how people carried me to the ground.Emotion: wink



Here is the castle. Kilitbahir means the lock of the sea. It was constructed in 1462 on Fatih sultan Mehmet's wish.



This is a kind of shelter. From the other side you can only see a hill so it enables soldiers to hide themselves

from the enemy.



The inside of the shelter is a kind of grave, you know war time and all soldiers were buried in such digs.



Another scenery. (The quality is really bad. Normally it is so charming!)



His name was Koca Seyit. He is sadi to have carried 276 kg of bullet on his back and shot an enemy ship.

It is also said that the bullet got into the ship from the chimney.



Here is the cemetery of Turkish soldiers. Actually our soldiers don't lie here.Their real cemetery is in the forest near

this cemetery.



It says the boy was 19 years old here. Believe me there are even much younger boys because every men over 45 kg

were accepted as soldiers.



This place is the cemetery of English soldiers if I am not wrong.

And now photos from the museum.

This place is the cemetery of English soldiers if I am not wrong.



Old people living there say that they can still find skeletons and old bullets if they dig the soil.



Can you see the bullets? Guess what a bloody war it was.



It seems that bullets were crashed on air.

Guess what this is. This is a kind of tunnel dig at war time and at the other end there is another tunnel enemies dig! If they had continued a bit, they would have met face to face.





Now you will wonder how Tukish people won that war though they were poor and short

of money and gun. Let me tell you one of the tricks. First, see the cliff picture. Turkish soldiers were at the top and the

enemies were waiting on the ground. Tuekish soldiers fell from that cliff.The sound,

cries and the dust at moon shine exaggerated the scenery and Anzacs thoguht that we

were really crowded. There are other clever pyschological war stories like this too.

And scenery from Conkbayırı.





Unfortunately I couldn't take a photo of the city centrum. Next time. Emotion: wink

A scenery from Kilitbahir Castle.

I don't know how people carried me to the ground.



Here is the castle. Kilitbahir means the lock of the sea. It was constructed in 1462 on Fatih sultan

Mehmet's wish. It is in the shape of a clover.



This is a kind of shelter. From the other site you can only see a hill so it enables soldiers to hide themselves from the enemy.



The inside of the shelter is a kind of grave, you know war time and all soldiers were buried in such digs.

It is also said that the bullet got into the ship from the chimney.

And another cemetery



There are only few of them.As you see, it is only symbolic.

Believe me there are even much younger boys because every men over 45 kg were accepted as a soldier.

It says he is 19 years old here.



This place is the cemetery of English soldiers if I am not wrong.

Wow!What is that? Is there a soldier there?



Yes, there is but it is only a monument.



Here it is!

Speaking of soldiers, here is a story of a soldier, meçhul asker, unknown soldier.



I won't give the country name here but one of the countries which fought in

Gallipoli took the head of our soldier and put it in a museum there under

the name of "a head of a Turkish soldier". No matter how much we tried,

they refused to give the head to us.Fortunately, we could take it back at last.
Thank you very much , Doll . One of most important battle of WW1 . Tanks again
