HC Deb 13 March 1924 vol 170 c2568W

asked the Secretary of State for War what progress has been made in the erection of an Imperial war memorial on Gallipoli: and whether, when it is completed, any official ceremony will be organized?


Two memorials, one at Cape Helles and another at Lone Pine, are being erected by the Imperial War Graves Commission. The constructional work of the Lone Pine memorial is 75 per cent. completed. In the case of that at Cape Helles, the foundations have been completed, and the base of the main shaft commenced. I hope it will be possible to make arrangements in due course for a ceremony of dedication.
