Today is ANZAC Day the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings. Particularly remembered in Australia and New Zealand.
Something to stir a bit of history, a small event during the campaign.
HMS Albion
HMS Canopus tows Albion off a sandbank off Gaba Tepe in the Dardanelles, HMS Lord Nelson approaching to assist.
"......later they got more guns moved up into position and began to belt away fast and furious, many bursting over our heads. At 7am Lord Nelson arrived and by that time things began to hum a bit";
