Anniversaries in 2016

01/09/2016

2016 will see two hugely significant centenaries in the history of these islands – 100 years since the the Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme. But before we turn to 1916/2016, today marks the centenary of the last evacuation of Allied troops from Gallipoli, an evacuation which was the best-organised and well-executed part of the entire campaign. Total casualties were more than half a million.
