April 25th 2015 marked the centenary of the first day of the Gallipoli Landings and the Battle of St Julien (2nd Battle of Ypres), in which battalions recruited in Berwick and the surrounding area played significant roles.
The commemorative programme included talks, interactive performances and a fascinating exhibition exhibition illustrating the actions of Berwick men in the campaigns of 1915 and life for civilians on the home front in Berwick during the period. The event was part of a year-long project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
