An Unexplained Disappearance

The story I am about to relate is one of the strangest reports of World War One.

The year was 1915. The Great War had already been raging for almost two years. A coalition of British, Australian and New Zealand troops comprised the force that was landed at Gallipoli on the Dardanells in Turkey. Their mission to attack the Turks.
