Everyone knows that Mel Gibson was at Gallipoli!
No it wasn't just the Australian or the New Zealander, there were men from
Canada and India, men from Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and of course,
England and France. More Britons than Australians died at Gallipoli. Over
21,000 British soldiers died at Gallipoli, 10,000 French, over 8,000
Australians, nearly 3,000 New Zealanders, over 1,300 Indians and 49 from
Newfoundland. And, don't forget nearly 86,700 Turks.
It is called ANZAC Day but soldiers from many countries took part. Of
course, in France and Belgium the casualties over shadowed these and
millions were to die.
So not just the ANZAC to be remembered.
