ANZAC & Rememberance Commemoration
Come and join with us to honour those; the fallen of WW1.
World War 1
World War 1 was indeed a terrible time but the immediate trigger to WW1 was the assasination of the Austro Hungarian Prince Franz Ferdinand.
Australia's involvement in the War:
When Britain had agreed to join and participate in the War. Because Australia was under the British empire they had to stand side by side with Britain in the war and go fight with them. They had to go and fight against the Ottoman empire. The Turks at Gallipoli and the Western Front.
Significant Batlles of ANZACS in WW1:
Gallipoli: In Turkey against the Ottoman Empire trying to free the Dardenelles
The Western Front: Fight in Western Europe against the triple entente and the triple alliance.
Impact of the great War on family at home:
Most people at home were worried or supportive of their loved ones in the war. Meanwhile people would pray daily for their husbands, fathers, brothers, sons to be safe in war and to fight for freedom.
The significance of ANZAC Day to Australians:
ANZAC Day is a day of mourning and commemoration. It is also to recognise and comprehend the true meaning of ANZAC Day and its significance to a typical Australian's life
