Alertness on the frontline

On April 25 each year Australians and New Zealanders remember those fallen in combat. In particular, they commemorate over 11,000 soldiers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who gave their lives during World War I in a thwarted effort to take the Gallipoli Peninsula from the Turks, who also suffered tragic losses. 

These ANZAC Day observances include dawn parades, often carried out in silence, that commemorate the military routine of waking soldiers before sunrise so they could be fully alert should the enemy attack “in the morning’s half-light.”
