I also have some breeches which look similar to the material used, I would love to know your thoughts

 

Thank you

I don't know what those are but I've never seen upside-down belt loops on British uniform before. Might be something totally different like WW2 Italian.

My interest is in making accurate models, correctly sculpted and properly painted, etc., so I've done lots of web searches and collected several pretty good texts.  Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought many if not all British units deployed to Gallipoli would be wearing some version of the lighter weight Indian Army KD pattern.  A careful web search should provide some examples.

All the best,

Dan

Is this photo of interest? It's quite well known.

Object description

Men of the 2nd Royal Naval Brigade, Royal Naval Division, practising an attack from a trench in the Island of Imbros. June 1915.

 

The IWM site is playing up, presumably because their PDM website goes live later today.

Medals are about to be presented to the three officers of the French Mission (Commandant de Cavalerie Jean De Bertier de Sauvigny with the DSO, and Lieutenants Félix Alexandre Jean Léon de la Borde and Paul Eugène Pelliot with the Military Cross).

Dear Paul and NR72,
