The positive way of looking at Gallipoli is that lessons were learnt that were put in place for the Normandy Landings of WW2.
The experiances of Churchill and the armed forces.

The so called 'Funnies" being just one obvious example.

We do after all learn from our mistakes.

Hello everyone

You have all been so wonderfully helpful in my search for Lionel.

I cannot find him on the National Roll of Honour of the Great War, can anybody please help me?

Thank you.

Helen

helen

the national roll was a commercial enterprise, so many soldiers are missing from it, and there are a few dubious entries from family members!  ::)
