Tomorrow the 25th April, in Australia and New Zealand it is ANZAC Day one of our most important national hoildays.Anzac Day was originally to honour and remember the sacrifice of the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire in World War 1. Today it's day we remember all our Military personel who fought and died from every war. All over Australia, New Zealand, ANZAC Cove, Gallopoli and other parts of the world a dawn service is held to remember and honour our ANZACs.
This year is the 101st Anniversary of the Gallipoli landing. The Anzacs landed on the shores of Gallipoli, at dawn on the 25th April 1915, over 10,000 Anzacs were killed in the Gallipoli Campaign.This is where our enduring Anzac legend was born.
There were 10 VC (Victoria Cross) awarded to our Anzacs at Gallipoli I would nice if we could add all these VC winners to Wikitree. If you have any ANZACs add them to Wikitree, if you would like to join the ANZAC project let us know.Do you have any stories about your ANZACs ? we would love to hear them.
We will remember them Lest we forget
