I began my research for this chapter with the aim of examining the ways in which military units viewed the experience of the Gallipoli campaign in the aftermath of the Great War. I wanted to establish whether Gallipoli was just another name on the regimental or divisional list of battle honours or whether unit experiences on the peninsula were elevated above subsequent actions undertaken in other theatres. Geoffrey Moorhouse’s book, Hell’s Foundations was one of my starting points. He suggests that Gallipoli became an integral part of the psyche of the Lancashire Fusiliers, to the extent that the stories of their bravery and valour on the peninsula have helped to create a myth of the Gallipoli campaign. This myth was so potent that it overshadowed all subsequent activities of the Lancashire Fusiliers and endures to this day through memorials and ceremony in the regimental town of Bury.1
