Anzac Day

ANZAC_Day_at_Manly,_1922

Today marks the one hundredth anniversary of Anzac day, which was established on the first anniversary of the landing of the Anzac troops in Gallipoli during the First World War (though unofficial commemorations had begun almost immediately after Gallipoli).

Here’s the Stuff You Missed in History Class episode about Gallipoli.  And if you’re interested, on AcornTV they have the Anzac Girls miniseries.
