    Default Gallipoli Centenary - The ANZAC's And Their Part In The Campaign.

    I was just browsing the web and found this well produced interactive article from The Sydney Morning Herald which makes good watching so I thought I'd post it here.

    ANZAC Centenary | The Story of Gallipoli

    And a page with a lot more links from the same publication.

    A very patriotic event and this will be the biggest year of celebration. However I am still uneasy on the event because although it symbolizes great Australian patriotism it also displays another poorly lead Anglo-Australian campaign which cost my family a Husband in 1915. My Grandfather (WWII Medical )before his passing always called Anzac day the saddest day of the year.

    A very sad end to these Anzacs. RIP. Not very different of our Somme slaughter.

    The Light Horse, that was Mel Gibbsons film Gallipoli, as I recall.

    Interesting posting Ned, cheers.

    Very true Harry on this day we should also remember the British and French soldiers as well as the Anzacs , Britain and France suffered the heaviest casulaties at Gallipoli.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    And one or two Turkish lads as well...

    At the dawn service here in Qatar this morning the Turkish Ambassador spoke and mentioned that in Istanbul for the next two years after Gallipoli there was no intake to Universities as there were not enough students to make up classes. The generation was gone...

    I haven't forgotten as you can see if you read the thread title Harry, "..Their Part In The Campaign", with the emphasis on "Their Part In". What do you want me to do, ask the Herald to re write the article???
