Gallipoli, 25 April 1915
On 25 April, Australians and New Zealanders mark Anzac Day, the anniversary of the 1915 landing of Britsh-led troops at Gallipoli / Gelibolu Yarımadası in Turkey. It was the beginning of the Gallipoli campaign which ended with the evacuation on 19 and 20 December 1915. The landing was the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces in during the First World War. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

In 2009 Australian and New Zealand members of The Commons have worked together to share photographs of the campaign in Gallipoli and later Anzac Day events on Flickr.

Throughout the day on 24 April photographs will be appearing on:

-- National Library of New Zealand
-- State Library of New South Wales
-- State Library of Queensland
