GA008 The Gallipoli Whale Boat
ANZAC (Australian & New Zealand Army Corps) troops were ferried ashore from the transport ships by a fleet of wooden life boats and whale boats manned by Royal Navy personnel. Some were towed behind steam launches, others were rowed ashore by ?Matelots? (sailors).
This K&C waterline ?Whale Boat? comes complete with a Naval cox?n at the tiller and can accommodate up to 24 seated soldiers.
*SPECIAL NOTE: A Royal Navy Steam Launch will be released later this year as well as sailors to ?man? the oars.
