Gallipoli Day 25th April
« on: Thursday 29 April 10 22:20 BST (UK) »
It was Gallipoli Day on Sunday,  to mark the day when the bravery of the men of the First Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers won "six V.C`s before breakfast". Eleven officers and 350men were killed or wounded as they stormed W beach 95 years ago.
There will be a special 100th anniversary parade in  Bury in 2015.
It is good to see  the men remembered,they deserve that.
