Gallipoli Memorial ..... May 2009

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives

You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country

Therefore rest in peace

There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us

Where they lay side by side

Here in this country of ours ...

You the mothers

Who sent their sons from far away countries

Wipe away your tears

Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace

After having lost their lives on this land

They have become our sons as well"

Ataturk 1934
