For the Fallen
They shall not grow old,
As we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning,
We will remember them.
by Laurence Binyon
On 25th April each year, dawn services are held in all Australian towns and cities, even the very small townships, no matter how
few residents, honour the men who fought in all wars.
ANZAC is an abbreviation for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
April 25, Anzac Day, was the day the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915.
The ANZACS were on the Gallipoli Peninsula for only 8 months, around 8,000 of them died there.
There is no town called "Gallipoli". It is the name of an area.
ANZACs were all volunteers.
The first dawn service on an ANZAC Day was in 1923.
