The Gallipoli Campaign was a combined operation (a naval attack 
followed by an amphibious landing on the peninsula) of the Entente 
Powers (Britain and France), sought to weaken the Ottoman Empire 
by capturing the Ottoman capital of Constantinople and at the same 
time by taking control of the Dardanelles Straits that provided a 
supply route to Russia, the 3rd member of the Entente. 
The campaign ended as a major Ottoman victory as the naval attack 
was repelled and after 8 months of fighting, with many casualties on 
both sides, the land campaign was abandoned and the invasion force 
was withdrawn.
A scarce cap badge.
