When the Australians and the New Zearlander's arrived in Egypt

they were mainly based in Cairo. They began training for the

western front but instead set sail for gallipoli on the 25th of

April 1915. British commander bird-wood created the Anzac's(

Australian New Zealand Army Corps ). officers enjoyed dances with

nurses and soldiers were able to spend money on food and services

and create a reputation in Egypt that is still remembered, in

Egypt( not always for "good" reasons" ).
