ANZAC Day is probably Australia’s most important national commemoration. Ninety years ago Australian and New Zealand forces together began their first major military battle. Australia itself was a very young nation and it was fighting against a foreign army half way around the world in a place called Gallipoli. In a moment we’ll hear what it was like to be there, but first, lets find out about some of the basics.
