Extraordinary photos of the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign have come to light over 100 years later - to show a lighter side to the horrors.<br />
<br />
The 11 month campaign against the Ottomans, which ran from February 1915 to January 1916, is regarded as one of the Britain's biggest military disasters.<br />
<br />
A staggering 213,000 troops from the Empire were killed, more than half perishing due to sicknesses such as dysentery caused by the unsanitary environment. <br />
<br />
Yet these images, which have emerged for sale with C & T Auctions, of Ashford, Kent, seem to paint a different, almost jovial snapshot of the campaign.
