As the sun rose on 25 April 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers rowed towards the shores of Gallipoli and into history itself.
Every year since, on April 25, as the sun rises, Australians gather across the nation to remember their legacy, and the legacy of all those who have followed in their footsteps.
As shared on the RSL website, this tradition began over a century ago, when the ANZAC soldiers marched in London to Westminster Abbey for a service attended by the King and Queen to commemorate a year since their fateful landing at Gallipoli in 1915.
The ANZAC legacy has remained along with the core qualities that Australians rely upon: mateship, humour, ingenuity, courage and endurance - known as the ANZAC Spirit.
Lest we forget.
