Remember the ANZACs

ANZAC day is a national day of remembrance in New Zealand and Australia, where we honour members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries, but as a Kiwi, it's something that I always think about when this time of year comes around. At home I would go to a dawn service with my Dad and Granny, whereas here there is less of a tradition. I will be trying to get to Turkey in the next couple of years to see the sunrise over Gallipoli, but this year in another far off country, I will think about ANZAC with friends, and hope you do to.
