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.
