During World War 1 (1914-1918) over 420,000 Australians served in various services and arenas; out of that approximately 60,000 lost their lives (14%) and 137,000 were wounded (32% of the total who served).

Australian (as well as New Zealand) troops served with distinction in many famous battles during this time.

Servicemen and women who served and lost their lives during the "Great War" are still honored in Australia and New Zealand on ANZAC day, which is commemorated on the 25th of April each year.
