ANZACs remember Gallipoli

Anzac class frigates from Australia and New Zealand have sailed from the southern hemisphere to take part in commemorative events in Turkey marking the centenary of the Gallipoli Campaign. HMAS Anzac and HMNZS Te Kaha sailed from their homeports in March and February respectively for five-month deployments centred on the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, which began on 25 April 1915. Australia will also be represented by the sail training ship Young Endeavour, and the UK by HMS Dauntless.

In 2005 HMAS Anzac and her crew also supported observance of the 90th anniversary of the landings, an event annually commemorated as Anzac Day. During her deployment, the ship will visit ports in Turkey, Italy, Malta, the UK, France, Spain, Morocco, South Africa and Mauritius, before returning to Sydney in August. The ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign against the Ottoman Empire involved more than 550,000 troops and sailors from Britain and the Empire.
