#OnThisDay 1916 the last British troops left the Gallipoli peninsula ending that doomed campaign. The Munster & Dublin Fusiliers were the first to land & over 3,000 Irishmen died there over the next 9 months. Of the 1,012 Dubliners who landed in Gallipoli, only 11 remained unscathed. The 1st Battalions from the Dublin & Munster Fusiliers has to be amalgamated because they suffered so many losses. Their name was changed to the “Dubsters”. Pictured are men from the Royal Irish Fusiliers trying to set a trap for an enemy sniper from their trench in Gallipoli.
