Question 1

TOUGH TIMES IN THE TRENCHES

Life was really difficult at Gallipoli. No spot was safe from Turkish fire.
The summer was boiling hot and the winter bitterly cold.
As soon as the soldiers had arrived they were given picks and shovels to "dig in" and create trenches.
The trenches, the dugouts for sleeping and the rest camp were home for the next 8 months.
A trench was like a huge ditch, 8 metres long, 1 metre wide and 2-3 metres deep. It had a roof of corrugated iron, logs and sandbags.
While on duty soldiers had to eat, wash and sleep in the trenches. They could watch the enemy with a periscope.
The rest camp was for off-duty time. Soldiers could go to the beach to swim and wash their clothes. Even there the soldiers could not be sure they would be out of the way of bullets from the Turks.
May 24, 1915 both the Anzacs and the enemy had a day off to bury the dead. The smell had become unbearable.
There were rats and loads of flies. The men were weak from sickness and dysentery.
Drinking water had to be brought in from islands off the coast.
Food was mainly bully beef (canned corned beef), rice, jam, cocoa, tea, some bread and 'hard tack'-('biscuits hard as bricks').
Now see if you can answer the following question.
They stopped the war because the stink was too great

Question 2

APRIL 25, 1915

How many things could go wrong?
LOTS!
The Anzacs were directed to land in the WRONG place. Instead of a wide beach and low hills, there was a narrow beach, ARI BURNU, later called Anzac Cove, and a steep cliff.
The soldiers had to clamber up the steep rocky slopes and up and down gullies.
There were LONG delays in landing the first Australian division.
The Turkish soldiers, led by Mustafa Kemal, called Ataturk, were strong and energetic in their defence and, what was worse, were waiting for the British and the Anzacs.
There was a fierce struggle and about one in five of the 3000 New Zealanders who landed on the first day became casualities.
The co-ordination of the different divisions was poorly planned and fell apart.
The Turks succeeded in securing the high ground. Far from rapidly gaining their initial objectives on Gun Ridge, the Anzacs found themselves in danger of being pushed back into the sea.
The New Zealanders captured the hilltop of Chunuk Bair. Many died during this offensive and the hilltop was reoccupied by the Turks shortly after.

Of the soldiers who landed on the first day about 600 were casualities. Is this true or false?

Type: True/False
