Gallipoli 1915; a forlorn hope?
With Martin Willoughby
Monday 16th July, 7.00pm @ Allendale House (East Dorset Heritage Trust)
Tickets £5, to include refreshments
By early 1915 with deadlock on the Western Front and Russia Struggling in the East, Winston Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty became the driving force behind a grand scheme to strike at the Central Powers on a new front in S.E. Europe, knock Turkey out of the War and open a relief route to Russia.
Martin Willoughby has had a lifelong interest in military history, but it wasn’t until after a long career in the military, and in industry, that he was able to fully enjoy his interest in military history and the Great War in particular. His focus on the Gallipoli Campaign is driven by the presence and death of a Great Uncle age 15 years on the peninsula. This interest was aided and abetted through membership of the Western Front Association. To date Martin has been the chairman of the Wessex Branch for some 15 years.
