The Gallipoli Centenary 1915 - 2015 \ In the pre dawn of 25 April 1915, Australian & New Zealand soldiers, along with \ other Allied troops, scrambled ashore on the Gallipoli Peninsula of Turkey. The \ Australian landing place is now known as ANZAC Cove. \ The ANZACs had to endure the extremes of climate and terrain. They also had \ to tolerate discomforts such as flies, dust, thirst, poor food, disease and lack of \ sleep. After eight months the Gallipoli Campaign ended with a brilliantly planned \ and executed evacuation but they suffered numerous casualties. In all 8,709 \ Australians and 2,799 New Zealanders died at Gallipoli. \ The experience gained in the initial battles on Gallipoli was built upon in the \ battlefields of France and Flanders and by the Light Horsemen in the Sinai, \ Palestine and Syria. Others served in the Australian Navy, the Australian Flying \ Corps and the Australian Nursing Corps. Intense training combined with good staff \ work and competent leadership enabled the troops to master the intricacies of \ warfare fought in Europe and the Middle East. \ Every year, on the anniversary of the landing, Australians around the world \ participate in solemn ceremonies of rememberance, gratitude and national pride \ for those who served at Gallipoli and for all men and women who have fought and \ died in all wars and conflicts.
