A statue of a Turkish soldier carrying a wounded allied soldier in his arms stands on the hillside in Gallipoli. The statue depicts an account told by Richard Casey, Governor-General of Australia. After raising a white flag tied to the muzzle of his rifle, a Turkish soldier climbed from his trench, picked up the British officer, delivered him to the Australian lines and returned to his own side. The battle of Gallipoli is widely dubbed the last gentlemen's war due to the respect both sides showed for their enemy.
