“Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mate ship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.”
