6 August marks the anniversary of the British forces landing at Suvla Bay, on the Aegean coast of the Gallipoli peninsula, in 1915. Gallipoli was a vital target for the Allies as its capture would open up access to the Dardanelles Straits to British warships in order to bombard Constantinople. The Allies were beaten back by Turkish troops and were forced to retreat.
