Gallipoli/ANZAC Day 25th April

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Imperial_Warrior, Apr 25, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Today the 25th April is the 92nd anniversary of the Allied landings in 1915 on the Gallipoli Peninsula at S, V, W, X and Y Beach at Cape Helles and ANZAC landings at Anzac Cove.

    I would like to pay tribute to all those British, Irish, Austrailian, New Zealander, Gurkha and French Servicemen who lost there lives either at sea or during the 9 month Land Campaign.
  2. In addition to the nearly 10000 ANZACs killed at Gallipolli, there were another 64000 killed on the Western and other fronts. A further estimated five thousand plus Australians and Kiwis died of injuries received during the war, within five years of the Armistice.

    We will remember them...

  4. We will remember them...Lest we forget. Just out of curiosity: In Australia, schoolkids take an encouragingly positive interest in ANZAC Day. The under-25s are starting to outnumber the oldies nowadays at ANZAC Cove. Surely there must be some sort of awareness amongst UK students: it was, after all, a predominantly British operation. What sort of information is available these days to kids in the UK regarding WWI in general?
