History for Today

ANZAC Day – The Landings at Gallipoli Commenced in WWI

This day each year is remembered as ANZAC Day in Australia, a day when Australians remember the fallen of every war Australians served in. The first ANZAC Day held was one year after the first landings at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War 1. We remember the cost of war, we remember those who died while fighting to protect our freedom and way of life. We remember those who served and who still serve in battles, wars and peace-keeping roles around the world and throughout our history. We do not forget them.

  1. I am excited to say that I will be following your blog. I had the opportunity to visit and stay in Australia for a total of 8 months in 2008 and 2010 and I loved every minute. Australia, its culture, customs, people, nature, and everything else, has shaped me to who I am today. It is a great opportunity to read blogs about the history and current events of this great nation! Great work!
