'W Beach from Hill, October', 1915
Photograph by Major Renold Marx, Royal Field Artillery, World War One, Gallipoli (1915).
'W' Beach was one of the two main landing areas on Cape Helles during the assault of 25 April 1915. Although the beach had been mined and covered with wire entanglements, 1st Battalion The Lancashire Fusiliers broke through and famously won 'six VCs before breakfast'. Afterwards, 'W' Beach was known as 'Lancashire Landing'.
One of 49 photographs taken by Major Renold Marx, Royal Field Artillery, Egypt and Gallipoli, 1914-1915.
