Gallipoli 2015 – Is anyone going?

Harry Crozier, learned to carve convalescing at Rotorua


My Dad and I have won tickets from the ballot…finally a dream come true to travel to Gallipoli and for the centenary as well.

There are only around 2,000 Kiwis able to attend commemorations, so I feel incredibly privileged,

Do any other readers have tickets and are attending? Perhaps we could catch up in Istanbul?

Information on travelling from Istanbul to Gallipoli is hard to come by. ?

By way of a bit of history…Dad’s grandfather, Harry Crozier served at Gallipoli and was invalided home after a Turkish shell seriously injured his leg.

For me to go to Gallipoli 100 years after by great grandfather is something very special. It is something I have always wanted to do, and now Dad and I will be there.

I am proud of our family connection to Gallipoli, this is a dream come true.

Let me know if you are going, and what arrangements you have made…we have a bit of catching up to do.
