Nga Taonga Sound & Vision - Sarah Johnston

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:33 pm on 16 December 2015

One hundred years ago this week, New Zealanders began withdrawing from Gallipoli. The British commanders had realised in late November that it was a hopeless campaign and plans had been made for an elaborate evacuation, which had to take place in secret to stop the Turks realising what was going on. There are recordings of many Gallipoli veterans held in the sound archives at Nga Taonga Sound & Vision, which talk about the evacuation. Sarah Johnston from Nga Taonga is here to play a couple of them for us.
