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.

That's why there are so many families here at the Green School Bali . . going "home" on holidays and/or bringing other family members - grands, etc - is not such a big deal. Google the school and see why I and my then 4th grader came here 9 years ago.

WoW! What a lovely thing to say. That would be very exciting.
I have a spare room, so any time you are in the area you are most welcome.
Funny, I had never picked up on the fact that you were so close. Bit slow :) Roll on 2023.

@owl2
Should I ever get to Sydney (you do know I am not far away . . . here in Bali), I want to meet you! I think you are more of a draw than the Opera House or any such. Perhaps in 2023 I will find myself with resources to travel a bit. I've been here on this island for going on 10 years, and have not seen Asia at all. . . not complaining, just explaining. A bit of experiencing life elsewhere around this Indian Ocean is calling me. . . Australia included. Audrey 8^))

How lovely of you to comment Berkeleyborn. "The Water Diviner" is one of my favourites too. Thank you on behalf of all Australians from a multitude of different origins who are lucky enough to have come across you and are welcomed into your home.
I am fortunate to have friends who come and settle in Australia from all over the world. Poland, Turkey, Afghanistan, Greece, Italy, France and good Old Blighty. All my relations originate from the Islands of Scotland.
I feel privileged to know and be friends with many Indigenous Australians. They are so patient and tolerant of we interlopers.
I love your puzzles and always look for them first each morning when I log on to jigidi.
Thanks again. :) :)

So many died at Gallipoli. After an eight-month-long campaign British Empire and French forces withdrew, having suffered 44,000 deaths between them (and you note 10,700 Aussies and NewZies among that number). At least 85,000 Turkish soldiers died definding their country. Consequently, Gallipoli is of profound importance to the national identity of both Australia and Turkey, and the Turkish welcome each year, Australians who travel to commemorate that tragedy with them. Helpful to me as neither Turk nor Aussie, was the Russell Crowe film "The Water Diviner" and I mark Anzac Day by watching it again, and opening my home to the many Australians who live here and are part of the Green School community.

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.
