The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust and The Lilydale RSL Sub-Branch are pleased to invite you to a graveside ceremony to commemorate the centenary of the evacuation of Gallipolli.

A ceremony and the unveiling of a memorial will take place at the graveside of Major William Scurry MC, DCM. Scurry invented a time release gun, enabling troops to be secretly evacuated without the enemy knowing - and without one loss of life, saving thousands. The system Scurry created was simple yet effective and was set up all over the Gallipoli Peninsula. 

Please join us on the day to mark this important occasion. View the flyer here.
