From Imbros Over the Sea – Presentation and Exhibition

May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

with JIM CLAVEN

 

The northern Aegean Island of Imbros and its population played a significant but little appreciated role in the Gallipoli campaign and Australia’s Anzac story.

Research by historian Jim Claven OAM reveals that Imbros was a major base for the Gallipoli campaign, the Island transformed and its people impacted by its effects. It was from the waters of Imbros that the Anzacs made their final approach to Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915. The Island became a major naval, land and aircraft base for the duration of the campaign as well as the home for the Allied Headquarters. Australian soldiers and others were based there, including the official press representative Charles Bean.
