The cruiser was initially attached to the First Battle Squadron of the fleet and supported the landings at the tip of the Peninsula. On 26 April she assisted the battleship HMS Goliath during attempts to support the landing on “Y Beach.” Talbot remained at Gallipoli throughout the campaign, and covered the evacuation of Anzac beach in December 1915 and of Helles in January 1916.
