Your comments:

  • I also hold one of these scarves passed down through the family. My Gr Uncle was killed at Helles on the Gallipoli Peninsula in the second battle of Krithia 8th May 1915
    I have many questions as to provenance

  • I don't know too much about the scarf except that my grandfather was killed in WWI he was from Manchester, England, but was living in Cobalt Canada when called to war. This scarf was my grandmothers. I have had it framed because of the beauty of it, and I didn't know if there were tons of them made or what they were for.
