As we celebrated today the 99th Anniversary of Australia and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) to honour the members of the ANZAC who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War 1.

I went to South  Australia Army Museum with my son for a little history lesson since he want to become a soldier in the near future.The museum is located on the site of historic Keswick Barracks, Anzac Highway, Keswick, Adelaide, South Australia.

The Museum has four Gallery:

The first Gallery is about Pre federation, Boer War,World War 1 and Gallipoli, Westen Front; (2) Between the wars and  WWII North Africa; (3)WWII SW Pacific, Korea War, Confrontation/Malaysia, Vietnam War and Peace keeping; (4) Special interest exhibits such as women at war .

For your Information, ANZAC day is a national  day of  remembrance in Australia and New Zealand  that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served

On the 25th of April 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the allied navies. The objective was to capture Constantinople (now Istanbul in Turkey), the capital of the Ottoman Empire, and an ally of Germany.
