Anzac in the snow, November 1915.
Lantern slide, World War One, Gallipoli (1915).
Although the heat of the Turkish summer took a toll on the men at Anzac, Cape Helles and Suvla Bay, winter on the peninsula was equally debilitating, bringing gales, blizzards and flooding. Thousands of soldiers suffered frostbite and some even froze to death.
From a box of 67 lantern slides associated with the Turkish Army, 1914-1918.
