Thousends Guides and Scouts simulated beginning of the war and visit all monuments and cemeteries to feel those days
The Gallipoli Campaign, also known as the Dardanelles Campaign or the Battle of Gallipoli or the Battle of Çanakkale (Turkish: Çanakkale Savaşı), took place on the Gallipoli peninsula in the Ottoman Empire (now Gelibolu in modern day Turkey) between 25 April 1915 and 9 January 1916, during World War I. A joint British and French operation was mounted to capture the Ottoman capital of Constantinople (Istanbul) and secure a sea route to Russia.[6] Following an unsuccessful naval campaign to force a passage through the Dardanelles, an amphibious landing was undertaken on the Gallipoli peninsula. The attempt failed, and after eight months of heavy fighting and many casualties on both sides the invasion force was finally evacuated. The campaign was one of the greatest victories of the Ottomans during the war and is considered a major failure by the Allies.
The battle resonated profoundly among all nations involved. In Turkey, it is perceived as a defining moment in the history of the Turkish people—a final surge in the defence of the motherland as the ageing Ottoman Empire was crumbling. The struggle laid the groundwork for the Turkish War of Independence and the foundation of the Republic of Turkey eight years later under Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, himself a commander at Gallipoli.
Every year The Scouting and Guiding Federation of Turkey organizes a  camp on the day of invasion. Guides and Scouts coming from all over Turkey with a message  “Dedeciğim ben geldim” (Grandpa I came for you). They simulate the movement of 57th regiment of Turkish Army to encounter the landing of enemy to make a bridge head.
Now the people in all of those countries are preparing to make this event on centenary at 2015 and we will also try to make ir one of the greatest Messengers of peace event and a join in event will carry this messages to all over the world where great grand children lives will hear it. These countries is not only Turkey UK France Australia New Zealand. There is many people from all over the continents where countries were under the flag of those belligerents
