Australia and New Zealand celebrate the ANZAC Day public holiday on the 25th of April every year to honour the bravery and sacrifice of the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), and of all who served their country in time of war.
The Anzac tradition began during World War I with a landing in 1915 at Gallipoli on the Turkish Aegean coast.
Although numerically the ANZAC were a minority of the half-million allied men who served at Gallipoli, the troops from the two young nations were often at the vanguard and became renowned for their doggedness despite what the British regarded as a lack of discipline.
