The Second Battle of Krithia - 100 Years On

Friday 8 May 2015 - Christopher Wray
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Second Battle of Krithia, Christopher Wray will speak on the events of the fateful afternoon of 8 May, 1915. The 2nd (Victorian) Brigade commanded by Sir James McCay took part in the final attempt to reach and break through the Turkish lines at the village of Krithia, 4 miles north of Capes Helles. Christopher, author of Sir James Whiteside McCay: A Turbulent Life, will discuss the devastating battle where McCay’s brigade lost nearly a third of its strength.
