1st May 1915




The official despatch of the opening of the Gallipoli campaign appears on page 9,of todays Daily Telegraph, and would have everyone believe that all was going well. Admittedly there was Turkish resistance, but all through the gallantry of the Allied troops is stressed, even if the despatch admits “The casualties in the army have necessarily been heavy.”
It concludes “The next phase of the operations will be dealt with when it is complete, and not in daily communiqués.” With hindsight of knowing what actually happened, could one read between the lines that this was because all was not going to plan, but those in charge wished to conceal the fact as much as possible?
