Gallipoli is an Australian-made miniseries, produced for the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign and based on the non-fiction book by journalist Les Carlyon. Thomas "Tolly" Johnson, a 17 year old Australian, lies about his age so he can follow his older brother Bevan to war. With their mates Dave Klein and Cliff Sutton, they endure the eight month campaign, from landing at Anzac Cove, to the August Offensive, and finally the evacuation.

The following weapons can be seen in the miniseries Gallipoli:

Rifles

Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III

The majority of Anzac soldiers carry the Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III rifle in the miniseries, including all four main characters. In Episode 4, The Deeper Scar, Thomas "Tolly" Johnson (Kodi Smit-McPhee) uses a Lee-Enfield No. 1 Mk. III* with magnifying Galilean sights fixed for sniper duty. In Episode 7, The Earth Abides, the famous self-firing rifle designed by William Scurry (a .303 with a string attached to a trigger and a water bucket, causing the rifle to fire when the bucket empties) is seen set up during the evacuation.
