Powerpointcreated by Charlotte, Quinn and Olive

what is anzac day

Here is the Havelock North war memorial:

WHAT IS ANZAC DAY?
  • Anzac day is a day when we remember New Zealand [& Aussie] soldiers, sailors, airmen and women who died fighting for New Zealand in 1914-18, 1939-45 and in all warzones since.
  • These men & women died in the belief that they were fighting to protect the way of life and the freedom that we enjoy in New Zealand.
  • April 25th, Anzac Day, is set aside for remembrance in Australia and New Zealand; while people in Britain honour their war dead on Remembrance Day, November 11th.
  • At 11 am on November 11th, 1918 [Armistice Day] the First World War ended.
why anzac
Why Anzac?

New Zealand Version:

  • Sergeant K.M. Little, a New Zealander, made up a stamp with the initials ANZAC.
  • He was heard to ask, “throw me the ANZAC stamp”.
  • Soldiers started saying ANZAC at around the same time.

Australian Version:

Australia New Zealand Army Corps.

Two overworked Australian Sergeants in Cairo had to organise a massive quantity of supplies pouring in for the troops.

Every box had to be recorded with the tediously long title.

They shortened it to A & NZAC and a rubber stamp was made.

A codename for the troops at Gallipoli became ANZAC.

The landing spot for the troops became ANZAC Cove and the troops ANZACs

  • To keep our freedom in NZ from the Germans and Japanese

how are people who stayed at home affected by the war
How are people who stayed at home affected by the war?
  • As more and more men went into the armed forces, industries, offices, schools, farms and everywhere else where men had worked needed to adjust to this loss of labour.
  • Women moved into work they had never done previously. Some known as land girls worked on farms.
  • Some factories changed to manufacturing munitions [military weapons, ammunition, equipment or stores] or military clothing.
  • Women also joined occupations.
  • Quite a number of women became members of the women's section of the military forces, the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps also known as the WAACS, the WRENS with the navy and the WAAFS with the air force.
  • Practically every race course and domain seemed to be taken over as a military camp.
  • Roads were busy with convoys of military vehicles.
  • At night everywhere was blacked out. No light was allowed to be seen from outside.
  • They dreaded the arrival of the post office messenger bringing a telegram from the government. It was most likely to tell them of a loved one, a husband, father or son having been killed in action, wounded, taken prisoner or listed as missing.
