(Untitled), [04] [Jul] [1916]

Reference Code: GBR/0014/CHAR 2/74/20-25

Scope and Contents

Letter from Major-General Charles Callwell to Sir Reginald Brade arguing that the papers on the Dardanelles Expedition to be presented to Parliament should deal only with the period from the preliminary examination of the subject up to General Sir Ian Hamilton's landings on the Gallipoli peninsula, since consideration of the subsequent failure of the campaign would reveal the manpower shortages arising from the failure of Lord Kitchener to recruit enough men without resort to conscription and the dilatoriness of the Cabinet. Asserts that Lord Kitchener did not approve of the naval attack on the Dardanelles but also did not expect the Turks to resist as much as they did. Gives detailed notes on the papers proposed to be presented to Parliament. Annotated typescript copy. Sent with CHAR 2/74/17-19.
