The Gallipoli Star was instituted by Sultan Mehmed Reshad V of the Ottoman Empire on March 1, 1915. It was awarded to individuals for bravery in battle during World War I, primarily to those who served in campaigns in the Middle East or Ottoman territories. The award included a badge, ribbon, and campaign bar. It is referred to as the Iron Crescent (from German "Eiserner Halbmond") or the Harp Madalyasi (Turkish).
