These four basic maps are from Bean's Official History (Vol. IV) and are just a quick and handy reference for anyone reading about the four battles featured on this blog. Soon we hope to also feature some really great-looking original 1917 AIF maps, some of which will appear in the exhibition.

George Lambert: Gallipoli and Palestine Landscapes Exhibition, Conservation
The intrepid Simpson Prize group have now returned to Australia after a very successful tour to Turkey. The final days of the trip were spent in Istanbul visiting the Dolmabache Palace, followed by a shopping frenzy in the Spice Market and the Grand Bazaar. Purchases varied from the predictable (Turkish Delight) to the exotic (belly dancing outfit) and many in the group launched into the spirit of haggling with great enthusiasm.
We have now left Turkey and gone on our own different ways. Some are off to the Western Front Battlefield Tour, some are returning home and others (like myself) are continuing with other travelling.

Now we have returned to Istanbul I can now load some more photos from day 6, 7, 8 and 9 and enter the stories and photos for days 10, 11 and 12. This includes the most important day of our trip, ANZAC Day.
