The Newfoundland Regiment joined the Gallipoli Campaign when its soldiers landed in Turkey on September 19-20, 1915 #RememberThem
The First World War’s Gallipoli Campaign would be the Newfoundland Regiment’s first experience of battle. The Newfoundlanders came ashore on the Gallipoli Peninsula on September 19-20, 1915 as reinforcements for the British, French, Australian and New Zealand troops who had been fighting in Turkey since April 25. The Newfoundlanders would serve bravely there, earning their first battle honour at ‘Caribou Hill’ that November and remaining in Gallipoli until the Allies finally pulled out in January 1916.
