As the main page link says ,

this page is about a Beaker,

 3-75 "tall  and under 2 inches wide at its base

and made from Bovine Horn and hand engraved

to all appearances if the description is to be believed  its nothing special,

but the Description is brief,

below are images  of what it signifies ,

and how it is possibly the best piece of so called,

trench art from a theatre of war from that period ,

known as the Gallipoli campaign,

The Gallipoli campaign was a military campaign in the First World War that took place on the Gallipoli peninsula (Gelibolu in modern Turkey), from 17 February 1915 to 9 January 1916.

which is well documented on other sites,

this page is more concerned with the beaker,

but also  showing the theatre of war  that gave rise,

to its making.

The British 29th Division landed at five beaches at
Cape Helles, code-named S V W X and Y. W and V Beaches,

the RND were part of those landings  and on the beaker 

You will see  the battles the divisions and the beaches they were involved in.
