TROOPER WILLIAM ALBERT BAKER
AUSTRALIAN LIGHT HORSE
28TH NOVEMBER 1915 AGE 35
BURIED: EMBARKATION PIER CEMETERY, TURKEY
The end of November 1915 saw the Gallipoli peninsular in the grip of a huge storm and on the 28th the first snow fell. The conditions were absolutely terrible, men literally froze to death and certainly couldn't function properly. In addition, when the snow stopped falling it had transformed the landscape, highlighting the khaki-clad soldiers against the white background. Is this how sniper William Baker was spotted and killed?
