Originally chosen to commemorate the fated Gallipoli campaign (that took place on the Gallipoli peninsula, Ottoman Empire) in World War One in 1915, ANZAC Day, held on 25th April every year, is the day of Remembrance for all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in wars, conflicts or peacekeeping missions. The ANZAC acronym stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Like Remembrance Sunday in the UK and Memorial Day in US it is time for reflection and remembrance and thanksgiving for those who gave their lives for the freedoms we have today.

|We will remember them|
