I have recently returned from a trip to Gallipoli to re-trace Malcolm Hancock’s footsteps with 1/4the Northamptonshire. Below is a selection of photographs to show where he had been.
Suvla Bay “A” Beach – where he landed 15/10/1915. It was a wet and windy day when I visited.
Remains of a Lighter at “A” Beach
The area around Kidney Hill where Malcolm won his MC on 16th August 1915, less than 24 hours after landing. It was even wetter and windier than at “A” Beach!
Hill 60 where he was holding the trenches and bombing officer for the Brigade.
