Today is ANZAC Day

It is ANZAC Day today in Australia and New Zealand and it’s a public holiday – yippee.

ANZAC was the name given to the Australian & New Zealand Army Corp that landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War. As a result this day has become a national day of remembrance for all men and woman who have fought and died in wars and many ceremonies are held across Australia for this purpose.
