Rejected by the inventions board

"Rejected by the inventions board. VII -The Gallipoli Shell-Diverter for returning the Enemy's Fire" There were other theatres of war besides he Western Front, and after the disastrous landings at Gallipoli off the Dardanelles strait, the soldiers were force to dig trenches there too. Blistering heat in the summer led to disease, and dysentery killed more men than did bullets. Heath Robinson remembered the soldiers who fought at Gallipoli in his "Rejected by the Inventions Board" series, although this time his contraptions are scattering Turkish soldiers wearing fez hats, rather than Germans in their Pickelhaube helmets. Date: 1916
