Gallipoli armistice

Gallipoli armistice

During the first month after the landings at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, casualties on both sides were heavy. The lines were close and both Turks and Anzacs were fighting fiercely for advantage. Many bodies lay rotting in the sun in no-man's land, and the stench and flies were horrific. Cases of dysentery began to rise. Both sides agreed on a 24-hour truce on 24 May 1915 to allow the dead to be buried. Here, Allied men begin the grisly task.
