Remembered Today:

Brigadier Walter Cass's photos of Gallipoli


Recommended Posts

I thought this link would be of interest to forum readers.


They were taken by a Brigadier Walter Cass and have been rediscovered after 70 years, by a member of his family, stuffed in a suitcase .

I really link photo 11 showing a Chaplain standing next to a stock of what I take to be sniper plates with a periscope SMLE rifle. Photo 9, although in poor condition, is probably the most thought provoking showing the landings at ANZAC Cove.

You are quite correct. Photo number 9 has been published before and we even know what unit is in it and who took it.

With the caption to the copy here, the AWM has managed to identify the time, some of the units represented and a few of the individuals; see http://cas.awm.gov.au/photograph/C01149
