We honour their service

99 years ago Australian and New Zealand (ANZACs) forces went ashore on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey. For 9 months they remained their fighting a desperate battle against a determined enemy defending their homeland.

In the end the ANZACs were withdrawn and went on to fight with distinction in Northern France and forge a legion that we celebrate today.

April the 25th is the day that we in Australia remember and celebrate all of those brave and committed individuals who served and continue to serve our country.

May their deeds and commitment continued to be remembered and celebrated through the ages as the greatest embodiment of what it means to help your mates without question or requirement.
