Our Cover

Gallipoli, April 25, 19l5. A place and a date well-known to Australians and New Zealanders. It was on that day that the name Anzac was born. The first landings in the Gallipoli campaign were made at Sedd-El-Barr by British troops from the old collier River Clyde, which was run on to the shore. It was planned to use her as a type of boat bridge. Our cover is a copy of a painting of the landing from the River Clyde - a landing as bloody as any ever made.

Back Cover

From near the top of the cathedral tower we got this pic of Waimea Road, the Girls' College hostel (foreground), Nelson College and the hospital.
