George Lambert: Gallipoli and Palestine Landscapes Exhibition

The Lambert exhibition has just opened at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery and will be on show there until 25 May 2008.

Throughout his tours in Palestine and Gallipoli, George Lambert was guided by Light Horse veterans of key events such as the Gallipoli landing, Romani and Beersheba.

They will be in Canberra to talk at the symposium this Friday 29 June about their time in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I joined the Memorial's Battlefield tour that left Australia 13 April. After 4 days in Istanbul we have arrived in Cannakale [Chanak] a small town on the Asiatic side of the Dardanelles that looks across the Narrows to the Gallipoli peninsula.
