Ode of Rememberance

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shal not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun in the morning.

We will remember them.

Australians At home

The war also had a very big impact on the people back in Australia. Wife's were loosing their husbands and sons and children were losing their fathers and brothers. Women had to replace the med in the workforce because all the men went to war. These women were not paid reasonably.

The significance of ANZAC day for Australians.

ANZAC day Is held on the 25th of April. It is one of Australia's important national occasions. On this day we acknowledge and thank the mighty soldiers who fought for us in World war 1. Even though the Gallipoli campaign failed, the Australian and New Zealand actions during the campaign left us all a powerful legacy that Australia and the world would never forget.
