Evacuation from Gallipoli

no date

Following heavy losses, the 53rd (Welsh) Division are evacuated from Gallipoli to Egypt. By this time, the Division is only at around 15% of its full strength. The fighting, the lack of reinforcements, and a terrible blizzard during November/December had taken its toll.

By 9 January 1916, the Allied forces had been fully evacuated from Gallipoli.
