There will be a number of services and ceremonies taking place around the UK to commemorate Anzac Day on 25 April.
Anzac Day is the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
On 25 April 1915, an allied expedition (including Australian and New Zealand soldiers) landed at Gallipoli. The intention was to capture the peninsula and open up a naval route to the Black Sea. They met fierce resistance from the Turkish defenders and what had been expected to be a swift campaign dragged on for eight months. The allied forces were finally evacuated at the end of 1915, leaving tens of thousands dead on both sides.
If you want to start the day early there will be a dawn service and wreath laying at 5.00am at the Australian and New Zealand war memorials, Hyde Park Corner, London. Despite the early hour, this service is always well attended.
