Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Anzac Day was first marked to honour the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula during the First World War.

The ultimate aim was to capture Constantinople (now Istanbul), the capital of the Ottoman Empire and an ally of the Germans.

The soldiers landed at Gallipoli on April 25, but met fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turkish defended.

More than 8,000 Australian soldiers and 2,700 New Zealanders died in the Gallipoli campaign.

Thanks marya. klchapz25. We in Australia also have Remembrance Day when all the guns fell silent over Europe. 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th Month.
Anzac Day honours the Australian and New Zealand Soldiers who landed on that first day at Gallipoli.

It is so sad how many young men lost their lives from all countries during the wars, then and now! It is interesting that we do Remembrance Day in November and that the poppy is the symbol for all of us!! Thank you for sharing!

Bless their souls.
