We Will Remember Them

Tomorrow is Anzac Day. For those of you who are not from New Zealand or Australia this is the day we set aside each year to remember and honour those who fell fighting for our country. Anzac Day was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during World War I, which was 100 years ago this year. Although not formally observed until 1920, Anzac Day gatherings happened right from the time the news of the horrific Gallipoli landing arrived in New Zealand. 2721 New Zealanders lost their lives in this Campaign. So many sons, brothers, fathers, husbands, nephews, grandsons and friends never to see another day. I have created a digital layout in remembrance of men in my family tree who lost their lives in World War One, including two who died at Gallipoli.
