New Zealand suffered some of its greatest losses on Gallipoli during the bitter battles of August 1915. In a recording made some years later, Gunner Leonard Leary recalls what conditions were like at that time on the Gallipoli Heights. At the same time, people at home began to hear news of New Zealanders interned in Germany from the start of war - among them Olympic rowing coach Tom Sullivan who was coaching the German team for the 1916 Olympics which, of course, were never held.
