WW1 PRINT GALLIPOLI Building Roads Construction Between Beaches Royal Naval Division Engineers FRANK DADD ARTIST
THE GRAPHIC Newspaper
A wonderful full page print suitable for framing and entitled To Strengthen Our Hold on Gallipoli Constructing the Seashore Road Between the Beaches from a drawing by Frank Dadd from a sketch by a Sergeant in the Royal Naval Division. The drawing shows the men hard at work with pick axes cutting out a road alongside the coast; refreshments available in the foreground.
One the front reverse is a diagram to accompany a full page article on the soldiers diet titled The British Soldiers Bill of Fare by a Fellow of the Royal Society. The diagram within the article is titled: The Fighting Mans Appetite and his Ideal Diet - an illustrated diagram by G. F. Morrell showing the amount of carbohydrates, proteins etc. in two diets. Plus how many lorries it takes to convey the rations etc. The article mentions Dr Pembury - Dr John Haldane - Army Medical Advisory Board - Calories - etc. I'm not sure who the author of the article is.
This print is from an original newspaper from the date stated; not a scan and not a later re-print. A publication similar to The Illustrated London News, The Graphic was a weekly illustrated newspaper published by H. R. Baines and Company Ltd of Tallis House, Whitefriars, City of London.
The page measures overall 395 x 280 mm (15.5 x 11 " ) approx. There is very little age yellowing and is in good condition. This item will be packaged in a tube. The descriptive text in my listing, details the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page.
