A panoramic view from Anzac looking out to sea at the fleet of warships and troop transports ...
A panoramic view from Anzac looking out to sea at the fleet of warships and troop transports gathered together off Anzac Cove on the day of the landing. The four funnelled ship on the extreme left is the armoured cruiser HMS Bacchante and the ship further out to sea, between the next group of two or three ships, is the dreadnaught battleship HMS Queen Elizabeth. The Island of Imbros is shown faintly on the horizon in the first quarter of the panorama. This is a digitally combined composite panorama made up of two separate images G1534K and G1534L. It is only available as a digital print. The two images are also available separately. One of a series of 62 photographs acquired by C.E.W. Bean from a number of sources in the 1920s. None were taken by Bean, but acquired to augment his own photographs. All were registered in his personal (C.B.) series and carry a C.B. number. All were subsequently registered in the AWM G Series under one accession number, G01534, and use a series of alphabetic extensions, commencing with G01534A, to accommodate the 62 items.
