LET FRAMOUR PICTURES GIVE TRIBUTE TO ANZACs SACRIFICE
WHAT DOES ANZAC STANDS FOR?
The acronym ANZAC stands for AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND ARMY CORPS. These soldiers were known as ANZACs. This day is one of the most important and highlighted national occasion for both Australia and New Zealand as both nationalities remind the sacrifice made by soldiers and pay tribute in many ways on April 25. It is the First World War’s first significant military engagement fought by Australian and New Zealand forces.
WHO WERE ANZACS?
In 1915, soldiers of Australia and New Zealand took part in a mutual war to capture the Gallipoli Peninsula to open the ways of black sea for Allied Navies. Major objective of the war was to capture Constantinople (Turkey), capital of Ottoman Empire, an ally of Germany during war. The ANZAC forcers landed at Gallipoli on April 25.
Plan was to knock off the Ottomans out of the war instantly but the campaign left for eight months. At the end of 1915, the allied forces were evacuated after immense suffering and hardships. During War, total deaths of allied forces were 56,000 out of which 8,709 were Australian & 2,721 were from New Zealand. Impact of this war concluded quickly as a day of remembrance for both nations and found importance of the sacrifices made by the soldiers.
Although the Gallipoli campaign’s military goals of taking Constantinople and ending the Ottoman Empire’s participation in the war were not met but the acts of the Australian and New Zealand troops during the battle left behind an unforgettable legacy. The development of the “Anzac legend” became a crucial component of both nations’ national identities. This has influenced how their residents perceive their past and comprehend the present.

So, families had to send edible items that retains high nutritional level and helps in maintain apatite. Biscuit was the only form which replaces the need of bread by having enough nutritional resources. The biscuit was first known as Soldiers’ Biscuit but gradually it shifts the importance to be called as ANZAC Biscuits with the desire of hardship and struggle recognition.
