Anzac Tours Turkey


“Uzak memleketin toprakları üstünde kanlarını döken kahramanlar; burada dost bir vatanın toprağındasınız. Huzur ve sükun içinde uyuyunuz. Sizler Mehmetçiklerle yan yana, koyun koyunasınız. Uzak diyarlardan evlatlarını harbe gönderen analar; göz yaşlarınızı dindiriniz, evlatlarınız bağrımızdadır. Huzur içindedirler ve huzur içinde rahat rahat uyuyacaklardır. Bu toprakta canlarını verdikten sonra artık bizim evlatlarımız olmuşlardır.”

Anzac Day İn Turkey

Gallipoli-Anzac-CoveAnzac Day İn Turkey We were assembled in the dark by the Gisborne Cenotaph in the rain-free but dank dawn of Anzac Day 2013. Meeting and greeting in the hushed voices we use at funerals. So when a strobe-lit helicopter approached and hammered its way directly overhead it was like the GDC decided to chainsaw the pohutukawa tree in the middle of the service. I switched off my hearing aids; until I was reminded to turn them back on after I got home. Anzac Day Trips

The current problem is that next Anzac Day the Cenotaph will be missing its three-metre tall Italian carved marble soldier who has been standing watch for nearly 100 dawn parades. Anzac Day Tours Turkey Imagine a cricketer on 99 ordered to come in by our civic leaders because the time has come to repair the grandstand. Not a crowd pleaser with an election looming. Anzac Day İn Turkey

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, 2016 anzac tours whose soldiers were known as Anzacs. Anzac Day remains one of the most important national occasions of both Australia and New Zealand, a rare instance of two sovereign countries not only sharing the same remembrance day, but making reference to both countries in its name. When war broke out in 1914, Australia and New Zealand had been dominions of the British Empire for thirteen and seven years respectively.  2016 anzac tours
