Anzac Day

On April 25, 1915, soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

Australia: 18.500 wounded and missing – 7,594 killed.
New Zealand : 5,150 wounded and missing – 2,431 killed.

Lest we forget.

Thanks for the reminder. Too many people have already forgotten the sacrifices from The Great War.

Actually there were far more British and French deaths than Anzac ones.

British Empire (excl. Anzac) : 198,000 wounded and missing – 22,000 killed.

France : 23,000 wounded and missing – 27,000 killed.

But it’s not an important event for those countries.
