ANZAC C.18.04.25

ANZAC is an acronym for Australian New Zealand Army Corp and the word originated in 1915.

ANZAC was to represent what was originally written as an acronym A & NZ Army Corps. It was shortened to ANZAC for better telegraphic communications.

When the soldiers from Australia and New Zealand landed at Gallipoli this location was recorded as Anzac Cove to mark the bravery of the men who fought and died.

The area is simply known as “Anzac”.

After this major event the men themselves were referred to as Anzac and those who served during this time later wore a brass “A” on their colour patch to distinguish themselves as veterans of the campaign.

To the soldiers of war “Least We Forget”

Happy Celeritism
