The Road to Gallipoli
Formation of the 9th Battalion AIF at Enoggera Military Barracks on 18 August 2014 set in train a series of events which would lead Lt Duncan Chapman being the first soldier to step ashore at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915.

I've started a series of Timelines here
Centenary of ANZAC 2014 ~ 2018
The Anzac Centenary is a milestone of special significance to all Australians. The First World War helped define us as people and as a nation.

During the Anzac Centenary we will remember not only the original ANZACs who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.

The Anzac Centenary Program encompasses all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australians have been involved. 

The Program aims to give all Australians the opportunity to honour the service and sacrifice of all those who have worn our nation’s uniform, including the more than 102,000 who have made the supreme sacrifice.

It also aims to encourage all Australians to reflect upon and learn more about Australia’s military history, its costs and its impacts on our nation.
This site is very much 'under construction' and will probably remain so for most of the period of the ANZAC Centenary as we develop and link to additional information.
