Kudos to those who gave so much.

What good timing. Just last night, I cooked up a lamb roast from New Zealand. Came out just like prime rib. Oooh, so good.

What we often forget, in remembering those Australians and New Zealanders who landed on the beaches and climbed the cliffs at ANZAC is that we were a small part of the picture.

Just under 10,000 ANZAC's died in the Gallipoli campaign, more than 100,000 other Empire troops, men from England, Wales, Scotland, North & South Ireland, Newfoundland, India, Ceylon, Nepal and Egyptians (Zion Mule Corps of Jewish Egyptians) In addition more than 25,000 French troops died including those from Metropolitan France, Senegal and other African Territories.

Many of these died in attacks even more futile and ill-planned than those we associate with ANZAC Cove.

PS. I forgot, even though i had included it in my original notes, that we must also remember that around 200,000 Turkish soldiers died, and that despite these horrendous casualties, our nations became and remain firm friends.

I have so much appreciation for those who gave so much, long ago or not so long ago.

I even must say that the movie "Gallipoli" with Mel Gibson was quite the emotional experience. To counter that I have to say that it was quite probably one of his best movies.

A little known campaign full of hope, becoming an exercise in futility and a sad waste of lives....but, that can be said of a lot of campaigns.

Almost a hundred years ago now. When I was born, WWII had been over less than 2 years, but it is beginning to seem like a long time ago.

Also about 1000 Newfoundlanders (not part of Canada at the time) were at Gallipoli, there casualties were much lighter than most, not sure why, 40 died.

Thanks Gunner,

1st Newfoundland Rgt was a reinforcement to the 29th British Division in Sept 1915 and served at Suvla Bay which wasn't quite as bloody as ANZAC or Cape Helles.

(Because I knew the OOB for 29th Div at Helles I didn't check for later reos!)

JeffK - Appreciate the clarification - I really don't know enough about the 1st World War, and Newfoundland is a long way from where I grew up.

Ib - Thanks, had not herd that song from Great Big Sea - great band, saw them live once when passing through Montreal in a 1000 seat venue - they rocked the place!

We will remember them - Je me souviens
