The ANZAC Soldiers fought to capture the Dardenelles at Gallipoli Peninsula. Many people lost their lives during the Gallipoli campaign including, 8,500 Australians, 44,000 from Britain and France, 87,000 from Turkey and among those lives lost were 2779 New Zelanders, 1/5 of them were at Gallipoli.There was a huge military defeat, but for the last 100 years, the New Zealanders landing on ANZAC Cove "meant the beginning of something else – a feeling that New Zealand had a role as a distinct nation, even as it fought on the other side of the world in the name of the British Empire."


A time of war of worldly change; a time of sorrow and things that can't go away; a time to think of those who were at Gallipoli, to remember and thank God that they fought for you and me.


English Poet and writer John Masefield.- 'No such body of free men has given so heroically since our history began.'
