ANZAC Day
Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. The main pic for me signifies the lives lost, the guns used, the bugle, and the 'Last Post' (more on that later) and poppies, always worn on ANZAC Day, signifying life
About this creation
In 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of an Allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli Peninsula, according to a plan by Winston Churchill to open the way to the Black Sea for the Allied navies. The objective was to capture Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire, which was an ally of Germany during the war. The ANZAC force landed at Gallipoli on 25 April, meeting fierce resistance from the Ottoman Army commanded by Mustafa Kemal (later known as Atatürk). What had been planned as a bold strike to knock the Ottomans out of the war quickly became a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for eight months. At the end of 1915, the Allied forces were evacuated after both sides had suffered heavy casualties and endured great hardships. The Allied casualties included 21,255 from the United Kingdom, an estimated 10,000 dead soldiers from France, 8,709 from Australia, 2,721 from New Zealand, and 1,358 from British India. News of the landing at Gallipoli made a profound impact on Australians and New Zealanders at home and 25 April quickly became the day on which they remembered the sacrifice of those who had died in war.

There's always 4 soldiers, one faces in each direction, all in different uniforms.

We need to remember the lives lost here. around 40,000 soldiers, just on the Allies' side died. And it ended in a draw, if you could call it that.

Maybe a strategic draw, but for both sides a loss. REMEMBER THEM.



Some artistic pics now



The bugle call gave the hour for daily duties or actions. The ‘first post’ for getting up in the morning, and the ‘last post’- played on ANZAC day- announces the end of the soldiers day











All are different, but they always are at the services
“They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old:
Age shall no weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.”
- Laurence Binyon (1896-1943)

Lets take a moment, and remember them...

I hope you enjoyed

God bless you all,

Tim

Quoting Space Gypsy . Does the day just commemorate ANZAC in WW1 or both World Wars? Because they did play a big part and ofcourse suffered greatly during the Seond World War too.
ANZAC day is in memorial of the WWI Galipoli disaster (see above). but yes, ANZACs also played a part in WWII.
