As all Australians, New Zealanders and Turks know, the 25th April marks the anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces on Turkey’s Gallipoli peninsula in 1915.
ANZAC Day gives us all a chance to reflect on the sacrifice made by so many who lost their lives in the defence of freedom during World War I and during the conflicts throughout the world since. We also take the time to honour those who survived, bearing the physical and mental scars of conflict.
