It initially focuses on the Penmaenmawr ‘Quarry Boys’, Territorial soldiers who worked together at the local quarry, landed at Suvla Bay on 9 August 1915 and went into battle the following day. As the exhibition travels it will also relate the stories of men from other parts of Wales who fought at Gallipoli.
