ANZAC Day - 25 April - is the day of remembrance of those Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who fought and died in World War I in 1915 on the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey. On this day we also remember all military personnel who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.
Although there was no military victory, at Gallipoli the Australians and New Zealanders displayed great courage, endurance, initiative, discipline, and mateship. Such qualities came to be seen as the ANZAC spirit and became an important part of the identity of both nations, shaping the ways they viewed both their past and their future.
The display, containing primary and secondary sources on the ANZACs and the First World War, is a tribute to all current and former servicemen and women.
