Anzac Day, 2013

Legacy Anzac Day

 

Right or wrong, ninety-eight years ago, Australian and New Zealand troops, joined their British and Indian allies, in a Commonwealth assault on the beaches and cliffs of the Dardanelle straits.

This was part of a Commonwealth war effort to open up a third front, in the hope breaking the stalemate in France during World War One.

Along with other serious conflicts Australia has been involved in throughout the 20th century, today we commemorate that event . In addition, we take the time to remember the danger of ideology, the cost, complexity and brutality of war.
