The Gallipoli Association 2024 Annual Conference will again take place at the prestigious RAF Club, 128 Piccadilly, London, W1J 7PY.

The keynote speakers and their topics are:

  • Professor Peter Doyle : ‘The Gallipoli Campaign: evaluating the impact of terrain, from forcing the Dardanelles, to evacuating the beaches.’
  • Major General David Shouesmith (Ret’d) : ‘Logistics and Expeditionary Operations - a Personal Perspective.’
  • Lieutenant Colonel (Ret’d) Dr Richard Farrimond : ‘Birdie: More than “Soul of Anzac” Field Marshal Lord Birdwood of Anzac & Totnes.’
  • Vice Admiral Paul Bennett (Ret’d) : ‘The Royal Navy today and the enduring lessons of Gallipoli.’

The day is followed by the optional Post-Conference Dinner.

This is a great opportunity to hear notable speakers, network with fellow members and other attendees, purchase books and items from the QM store.

Rising costs require us to charge £60 for the Conference, but this includes a working lunch, with teas and coffee during the breaks. Registration will be from 9.15 in the Foyer. The Conference will run from 10.00 - 17.00. (Please check our website, monthly newsletter and social media for an update on speakers.)

The three-course Post-Conference Dinner will also be held at the RAF Club at 19.00, with cost increases forcing us to charge £60 per head, excluding wine and drinks, which can be ordered prior to sitting down. There will be a cash bar from 17.30.

Both the Conference and Dinner are open to non-members and their guests.
