Gallipoli 100 at the Fusilier Museum

Gallipoli 100 at the Fusilier Museum

25 April 2015 - 14 May 2016

The Fusilier Museum in Bury, Lancashire, is home to the collections of XX The Lancashire Fusiliers and the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. Documenting over 300 years of history and heritage through permanent and temporary exhibitions, the Museum tells the rich and fascinating stories of the people who have served and continue to service in the Regiments. On the 25 April 2015 it was 100 years exactly since the Lancashire Fusiliers famously won “Six VC’s before breakfast” as part of the Gallipoli landings. To commemorate this major milestone there is a new, temporary exhibition which tells the story of The Lancashire Fusiliers during Gallipoli. Until the 16th May 2015 the exhibition included all the six Victoria Crosses on display together for the first time. Three medals have now been returned to their owners but the remaining famous medals can still be viewed.
