The Turkish prisoners taken in the Gallipoli Peninsula fighting are marched in batches as captured to the sea-shore and “corralled” there in camps hedged with barbed wire until it is convenient to ship them for their place oí detention—mostly to Egypt. We see above a corner of one camp, that on ” W 1 Beach, just as the first two comers of a fresh haul have been placed iiiside. The soldier speaking to


the sentry is an Australian. The correspondent who sends the photograph describes the newcomers as looking “too happy” at their capture. A “Times” correspondent at Cairo describes the later arrivals of prisoners as untrained, middle-aged men, while the officers are of better type than the previous set, who were ill-tempered and surly grumblers. Most of them maintain a belief in Germany’s invincibility.
