A Tribute To The ANZACs Soldiers of World War I The Ode They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. The Eternal Flame The Shrine of Remembrance Who Were The ANZACs?

The ANZACs were the soldiers who were enlisted in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps during World War I. Their role in history and the protection of the nations is celebrated each year by the observance of ANZAC Day. ANZAC Day was introduced as a national holiday in 1916, to remember the men and women who served Australia and New Zealand, and is celebrated on April 25 every year. The date of the holiday, April 25, and the time of the ceremonies, dawn, are specifically used to commemorate the date and time of the landing at Gallipoli. Flag of Australia

Flag of New Zealand The Gallipoli Campaign On April 25, 1915, the allied forces attempted to capture the Gallipoli Peninsula and Istanbul in Turkey. This was a move designed to give the Allied navies access to the Black Sea, in order to be able to deliver supplies. It was originally intended that the ANZAC forces would land on a beach and face an opposing force of approximately 40,000 Turkish soldiers. This wasnt the case however, as rather than the flat beach they were expecting, they landed on an area with steep cliffs, which they had to climb up to get to the battlefield.

The Turkish soldiers however, were expecting the ANZACs, and as they landed on the beach, the ANZACs found themselves under fire from the Turkish forces who were already on the battlefield. Over 20,000 soldiers landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula as part of the ANZAC forces, and in the eight months (25 April 20 December, 1915) they were at Gallipoli, 8,141 had been killed or died of wounds and over 18,000 had been wounded. At the end of each night, the Last Post was played, signifying that each soldier should return to

camp. The Last Post The Last Post is a bugle (or trumpet) call, played at the end of a soldiers day, signifying that the soldiers should be in quarters. The Last Post is played at a number of events, specifically military funerals and commemorative services. It is played to indicate that the soldier has completed his

lifes work and has entered into his rest. ANZAC Day In Melbourne In Melbourne, ANZAC Day is commemorated with a ceremony at the Shrine of Remembrance, which is pictured at the right. Firstly, there is the Dawn Service, where those gathered await the rising of the sun. This is held between 5.45am and goes to 6.30am, when the Official Wreath Laying is held.

The Official Wreath Laying is held between 6.30am and 8.30am. This is the opportunity given to members of the public to lay wreaths after an Official Wreath is lain. Also beginning at 6.30am is a Gunfire Breakfast, hosted by the Retired Services League, in front of the Victoria Barracks. ANZAC Day In Melbourne A March is then held, where serving members and those

who remember them walk down Swanston Street, cross over the Yarra River and continue down St Kilda Road until they reach the Shrine of Remembrance. This March is usually attended in quite large numbers. After the March, the ANZAC Day Commemoration Ceremony is held at the Shrine of Remembrance, between 12.45pm and 1.30pm. The Shrine of Remembrance is then open to the public. A Tribute THE ANZAC MEMORIAL Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country.

Therefore, rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies And the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side, Here in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries... Wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom And are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have Become our sons as well. - by M. Kemal Atatrk, 1934 Lest We Forget
