Map of Gallipoli scale 1:40 000 : sheet 2
Relief map of Gallipoli scale 1:40 000 : sheet 2 belonging to Noel Medway Loutit, who landed with the 10th Battalion at Gallipoli 25 April 1915. Annotated in ink and pencil, showing howitzers, gun emplacements, and types of terrain. At some point the sheet was wet whilst folded and the ink has run and transferred to the other side of the map in a mirror image. There is no date for the annotations, but they would have been done before 25 April 1915. The map is stained and torn in some of the folds. The map has a pencilled note on the back stating “Gallipoli Map used at Gallipoli landing 25/4/15 by NML” and the name written on the back of the map is “M… N M Loutit A Coy 10th AIF”.
