ANZAC Day...

Today our friends Down Under remember their countrymen and women by honouring their sacrifice in times of conflict, most particularly on the 25th April 1915 as Australian and New Zealand troops landed at Gallipoli...

For Australia, as for many nations, the First World War remains the most costly conflict in terms of deaths and casualties. From a population of fewer than five million, 416,809 men enlisted, of which over 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.
