History of Anzac Day

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the initial campaign that headed to major fatalities for Australian and New Zealand forces for the duration of the First World War. The abbreviation ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose armed forces were well-known as Anzacs. Anzac Day remains one of the most essential national events of both Australia and New Zealand. Still, the observances and their meanings have altered considerably since the year 1915.

As per to Dr Martin Crotty, a historian at the University of Queensland, Anzac commemoratives have “suited political purposes right from 1916 when the first Anzac Day march was held in London and Australia, which were very much around trying to get more people to sign up to the war in 1916-1918.”
