Turkish gun at v- beach

A number of world war one ships' guns were salvaged and deployed on the coast as part of the Dardanelles' defences in view of a possible entry in ww II.

Their fortified emplacements were build in the 1930ies to protect the peninsula from a possible invasion. Luckily they were never used as turkey remained neutral in the Second World War.

They can be seen at : V-beach in Europe, Mesidiye, Turgut Reis and Karanlık lımanı in Asia.
