Looking towards Cape Helles across a camp on the Gallipoli Peninsula. In the foreground is an olive grove. On the far left is the British transport ship River Clyde, a converted collier, which took part in the landings on 25 April 1915. The River Clyde was run aground here, close to the entrance to the Dardanelles, to enable Allied troops to land using a path of barges and pontoons. There was then a drive up the end of the Gallipoli Peninsula, and an attack on Turkish troops.
