Now in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, this lifeboat was from HMT Ascot and was used by Australian troops during the initial landings on Gallipoli on 25 April 1915.

it's just incredible, to see in real terms rather than film archive just what a hammering the ANZACS received during those terrible first waves of the onslaught. May they all NEVER be forgotten for their bravery and ultimate sacrifice.
Those bullet/shell holes in her hull say it all.
RIP guys, and thanks.

Thanks for the update Ozzie, this is one of a series I took while visiting family in 2008/9.
