The New Zealand Memorial to the Missing in Twelve Tree Copse Cemetery at Helles. Scroll right to take in the cemetery. The village of Alçitepe (Krithia) lies about 1 km behind the trees at the far end of the cemetery. The infamous Daisy Patch – ground that the New Zealand Infantry Brigade advanced across with heavy casualties on 8 May 1915 – was a short distance beyond the other end of the cemetery, again obscured by the trees.

This memorial includes the names of 179 New Zealanders killed at Gallipoli who have no known grave. It is one of four such memorials to New Zealanders on the peninsula and the only one outside the Anzac sector. Read more about the memorial, including information about those listed, from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website.
