ANZAC

The  Australian  and  New  Zealand  Army  Corps

   On 25th April 1915 the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed under heavy fire at a cove on the west coast of the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey. The troops evacuated in December 1915 after suffering massive casualties.  The huge death toll of young men at Gallipoli and later in France shocked the people of the two countries and led to 25th April being commemorated annually as their most solemn national days.

Anzac Cove, Turkey, in 1915 with Australian, New Zealand and Indian troops camped on the beach.  The frontline trenches were on the heights above.
