Hi. I'm going on holiday to Lemnos in summer 2023. My grandfather spent some time there (whilst serving with the Royal Naval Division) in 1915 before landing at Gallipoli. Are there any WW1 sites or places to visit that are worth exploring? Many thanks

I think Gallipoli itself would be a good it would be interesting to see Suvla Bay, Anzak Cove, the trenches and possibly Lone Pine, or the Nek, Sari Bair,or even Schmitter Hill.

The three CWGC cemeteries - East Mudros Military, Portianos Military and the West Mudros Moslem Cemetery are obvious places ....... and don't forget that the armistice with the Ottoman Empire was signed aboard HMS Agamemnon in Mudros harbour on 30 October 1918.

This is a 'must see' thread for you:

Perhaps you can retrace Montbrehain's tracks fifteen or so years later and provide an update?

@Bingoiddrop me a message, happy to help.

You'll want to visit Mudros harbour. A car is handy. And take some printed-out photographs with you.

Thanks very much, i've so interested in gallipoli i've been neglecting to find out about these two ports. I one or both may have been used for hospitals for the wounded as well as embarkation ports. Pete

For some stupid reason i thought Lemnos and Moudros were two seperate islands what an idiot, thanks for putting me right. Pete

Mudros had lots of hospitals!

This is an old site of me and my partner's. I stopped updating it because information was being taken and reused without attribution. (The point of the website was to share research, and only general courtesy was being asked for!) However, you might find the references useful.

That's still a great site Bern. and I'm very sorry to hear that you feel you can no longer keep it up-to-date, however I quite understand
