Canakkale – Gallipoli

Final stop of the cruise before disembarkation at Istanbul was Canakkale, where there was a choice of trips between Troy and Gallipoli. I went on the trip to Gallipoli, two days after Anzac Day; one of our lecturers, Major Gen. Paul Stevens, spoke a few words at the memorial site and a relative of one of the (many, many) people buried there laid a wreath. We should be back in Canakkale at the end of this trip: I hope to go to Troy then.
