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:


Webley Mk. VI

The Webley Mk. VI revolver is carried by Anzac officers fighting in Gallipoli, most notably Captain Eric Taylor (Jeremy Lindsay Taylor) and Anthony Chandler (Anthony Hayes).

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.

Mauser Model 1893

In some scenes, very accurate M1893 Turkish Mauser rifles, which appear to be the unconverted 7.65×53mm original version, are used by Turkish soldiers.

Mauser Model 1903/30

The post-WWI updated Mauser 1903/30 Rifle is carried by Turkish troops, often fitted with an M1890 bayonet. Identified by the large stripper clip bridges and 7.92x57mm rounds loaded by the Turks during the Battle of the Nek scenes.
