Gallipoli Diary 1915

£16.99

A valuable account of trench and nullah from a Gallipoli soldier who saw Helles in war – and perfect peace. Alec Riley was a signaller with the British Army’s 42nd Division. He had the rare opportunity to move freely about the Allied lines during the Gallipoli Campaign. He kept detailed notes, and added to them while recollections were vivid. After the war, Riley returned twice to the peninsula in pilgrimage. He travelled independently, traversing once-familiar trenches and thoroughfares at Helles, recording what he thought to be of interest and importance. Riley’s eloquent account, illustrated by his photographs, includes an unpublished comment by Sir Ian Hamilton.
