The Empire (or Cape Helles) Memorial that stands between the two bloodiest landing sites at Cape Helles on 25 April 1915. The walls of the enclosure are a memorial to the missing, and include the names of British, Australian and imperial troops. There are separate New Zealand memorials to the missing elsewhere on the peninsula, although the names of 11 New Zealanders who died while serving in British or Australian units are here, including Bernard Freyberg's older brother Oscar. Scrolling right, Seddülbahir lies to the right of the memorial. Shipping heading to and from the Dardanelles can be seen with Turkey's Asiatic shore in the distance.
