These two bullets were found after the Battle of Gallipoli which started in 1915 and ended in 1916 during WWI. The allies consisted of British, French, Australia and New Zealand against a fierce Turkish Army. In the end, the allied side lost 46,000 troops while the Turkish lost 65,000, with the Allies retreating from the battle. The Turks still consider their victory at Gallipoli to be a great, defining moment in the nation’s modern history. Eight years later, the Turkish War of Independence broke out, led by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Ataturk was a commander at the battle of Gallipoli.

19th Century Winston
Before Churchill packed on his WWII weight, he was a dashing young man. Taken in 1895, we can see the sheer youthful innocence of one of the most influential leaders in European history.

I regret to confess, it took me a second or so to figure that out.

...and oh how things change. From conflict over what is now Texas to the Zimmermann telegram to teaming up to slap a cartoon Hitler silly - and now a POTUS who campaigned on a ridiculous wall, called Mexicans murderers and rapists and tacitly supports American neo-nazis.
