Suvla 100 Anniversary

To mark the 100th Anniversary of the landing of the 6th & 7th Munsters at Suvla Bay on the 6th & 7th of August 1915 the President of the RMF association Mr Ollie Griffin laid a floral tribute at the War Memorial in Cork. Ollie’s father had been one of the Munsters who took part in the beach landing 100 years ago.

 

Also to mark the centenary, Ronan McGreevy of the Irish Times has been in contact to say he has edited a version of Twas Better to Die – The Irish Times and Gallipoli 1915-2015. This is now available on ebook and Kindle at
