Gallipoli


They were 1000 soldiers in Gallipoli. The time is 6:00 in the morning and it is cloudy. They are making a big house for a sleep and they are making food for breakfast. They look very very sad because somebody died. They killed the other people with guns. They killed the people on the hill. The people die in Gallipoli because they fought in Gallipoli. The people are sad because their friends have died.
