Commemoration of the Anzac Landings

On the 25th of April 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the allied expedition set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula. These soldiers became known as Anzacs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) and that name continues to this day.

The Anzacs were courageous and although the Gallipoli campaign failed in its military objectives, the Australian and New Zealand actions during the campaign left a powerful legacy.

To commemorate this day, every year a commemorative service is held at dawn – the time of the original landing in Gallipoli, Turkey. Thousands of people travel to this historical site to pay their tribute to those who fought in the war. Mostly celebrated by Australians and New Zealander, in 2015, this ceremony is going to be even bigger, being the 100th anniversary of the landing.
