I used this as a starter for lesson on Gallipoli! Also used film clip from where Australian forces arrived at Gallipoli from film ( night scene) . When I have had time, I have challeneged this interpretation with pupils. Myths about WW1 and stereotypes about British officers ! Also song written in 1 More…971 and is an anti- war/Vietnam song.
Download song from Pogues or original Australian Ballad. Also point out discrepancies! Were the Australians at Suvla Bay? Link below to song with images in you-tube.
