Front Inscription

LEST WE FORGET

(Plaque Donated by the Turkish Youth Association)

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ...
You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country,
therefore rest at peace.
There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us
where they lie side by side here in this country of ours...
You, the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries,
wipe away your tears: your sons are now lying in our bosom
                   and are in peace.
Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."

MUSTAFA KEMAL ATATURK
Commander of the Turkish Forces at Gallipoli,
First President of The Republic of Turkey
