Helles Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Monument. The Helles Memorial is a World War I tribute to the Gallipoli Campaign and to men who fell in that campaign and whose graves are unknown or who were lost or buried at sea in Gallipoli. Inscribed on the monument are the names of 20771 whom died, all the ships that took part in the campaign, plus the titles of the army formations and the units which served on the Peninsula. It stands on the tip of the Turkey Peninsula and is in the form of an obelisk over 30 meters high which can be seen by ships passing through the Dardanelles. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
