Soldiers dug in at Chocolate Hill, Suvla Bay, Gallipoli, 1915

Photograph by Trooper O Ward, 1st County of London Yeomanry (Middlesex, Duke of Cambridge's Hussars), World War One, Gallipoli (1915).

Although the landing of new Allied divisions at Suvla Bay on 6 August 1915 caught the Turks by surprise, Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick Stopford's men moved inland too slowly and the Turks were able to occupy the heights overlooking their position. The stalemate at Gallipoli continued.

From a photograph album of 124 photographs compiled by Tpr O Ward, 1st County of London Yeomanry, 1915-1916.
