What is Anzac Day and when is it?
Every year on April 25, Australians and New Zealanders remember the sacrifices their fellow countrymen and women made to ensure their futures. First marked in 1916, Anzac Day was originally created to commemorate the efforts of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC).
What happened at Gallipoli?
The First World War's Gallipoli campaign is a key part of Anzac history and saw Australia and New Zealand's first involvement in the war. Over the course of eight months in 1915, fierce battles were fought between the Anzacs and Turkish forces with the Ottomans eventually prevailing. Nearly 12,000 Anzac troops lost their lives.
