Hi,

Welcome, and hopefully you will be able to find out more. Was the relative William Hannan? What info have you got so far, or more specifically what else are you trying to find out?

Hello yes indeed it is 1648 Rifleman William Hannan.
I know he was in the Finsbury Rifles,and according to his medal card he was not at Gallipoli for very long,roughly 7-10 days my interest is where they were landed.
His name is on the Helles memorial and i hope to go to the peninsula next year to pay my respects.
Terry.

Here is a wee bit regarding the Finsbury Rifles
 

1/11th (County of London) Battalion (Finsbury Rifles)
August 1914 : at 17 Penton Street in Pentonville. Record same as 1/10th Bn.

Part of 3rd London Brigade, 1st London Division. Moved on mobilisation to Bullswater, going on in September to Crowborough.
April 1915 : moved to Norwich and transferred to the East Midland Brigade in East Anglian Division.
7 May 1915 : formation renamed 162nd Brigade in 54th (East Anglian) Division. Moved to St Albans.
Late July 1915 : sailed from Plymouth for Gallipoli, going via Mudros. Landed at Suvla Bay 11 August 1915.
December 1915 : evacuated from Gallipoli and moved to Egypt.

The following url can be used to trace the service of the Battalion during the Great War.

You might also check out this page as it shows dates when the Finsbury Rifles relieved the Bedfordshires during the Gallipoli Campaign.
 
Hope its a start for your research

A bit late but Hello Bunhill, I too have a close relative who died at Gallipoli but for some reason he joined the ANZAC and was KIA Lone Pine between 6th - 9th August 1915.

Good luck with your research its a very interesting subject.
