Anzac Day is a day of remembrance on the Australian calendar. April 25th marks the anniversary of the pre dawn landing of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey during World War One. Sadly, the campaign was a failure with horrendous loss of life on both sides. It was here, however, on this treacherous battlefield, where the spirit of the Aussie Digger was born. Tales of endurance, camaraderie, self sacrifice, courage, humour and mateship emerged among the soldiers, creating a strong national identity back home in our fledgling country.
