Australia and NZ commemorate their fallen ones

Anzac day commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in a war, conflict or peacekeeping operations. 

Originally, Anzac Day commemorated the landing on Gallipoli from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Its main objective was to capture Constantinople/Istanbul. Although the mission itself failed, its impact did not.

Every year, this day serves to remember the fallen soldiers. Anzac day has two main forms of remembrance; the day starts with the Dawn Services. Later on, there are more formal commemorative ceremonies.
