The Cameronians in Gallipoli

These photos were used by the schools during the project. They were chosen to show children what life might actually have been like for the men of South Lanarkshire. They trace the story from recruitment (top left photo) right through to evacuation and recuperation in Mudros (bottom right). The Cameronians did not stop there though: their war continued in the Middle East, continuing the fight against the Ottoman Empire in Egypt and Palestine.
