On the 25th of April 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula. These became know as Anzacs and the pride they took in that name continues to this day.
Anzac Day falls on the 25th of April each year. The 25th of April was officially named Anzac Day in 1916.
'ANZAC' stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
