Cardiff to mark centenary of Gallipoli campaign
Welsh soldiers who lost their lives in the Gallipoli campaign during World War One will be commemorated today with a temporary statue in Cardiff.
Hundreds were killed in the battle of the campaign 100 years ago in what is now modern Turkey.
The sculpture promotes the Legion's Every Man Remembered campaign calling everyone to write their own personal message of commemoration and thanks to the 1,117,077 men and women from the Commonwealth who fell during the First World War.
Nearly 9,000 French, 21,000 British and Irish and 86,000 Turkish troops died in addition to the 11,000 Australian and New Zealand fatalities in an attempt to occupy Constantinople, now Istanbul.
