Australians and New Zealanders commemorate Anzac Day on 25 April to recognise the sacrifices of Australian and New Zealand servicemen and servicewomen: those who not only defend their country but uphold their nations’ firmly held commitment to peace and security. In 2016 we mark the 100th anniversary of the Western Front.
This year marks the centenary of the first Anzac Day services held in Australia and New Zealand to commemorate the Gallipoli campaign. In 1916, after the Gallipoli campaign, Anzacs arrived on the Western Front where they suffered great losses. The Western Front remains a place of special significance to many Australians and New Zealanders.
