Peter,

I did notice in the TV news today that there was a new museum opened up near Gallipoli which covers all the battle fronts from Anzac and Helles to Suvla.

Thanks Steve.

Mentioned here:

http://www.skynews.com.au/story.asp?id=174675
A new museum honouring Australian, New Zealand and Turkish war dead in the Dardanelles campaign of 1915, has been opened on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

It houses more than 7000 relics and artefacts collected from the battlefields.

The museum is set in the trenches where men and women fought and died.

It was established by a group of Turkish people known as 'The Gallipoli Diggers'.

They scoured the battlefields and the shores of Anzac Cover for 15 years to collect the items now on display.

Visitors say the museum is a moving account of the great battles, and for young it helps illustrate the terrible conditions in the trenches.

Regards
Peter
