How many wars have anzac soldiers been in?
Anzac was a term that was coined to describe the New Zealand and Australian troops at Gallipoli in 1915 (the First World War). After the Gallipoli Campaign ended the Corps disbanded and became the New Zealand Expeditionary Force (NZEF) and the Australian Infantry Force (AIF). They were no longer Anzacs. So really only one.

How old did you have to be to join the Gallipoli war?
There was no "Gallipoli War". People did not enlist in a "Gallipoli war": they enlisted in the Australian Army,which sent troops to Gallipoli, one of many campaigns undertaken during World War 1. The enlistment age for the Australian Army was 21 years. With the permission of a parent or guardian, it was age 18. Many younger boys lied about their age in order to join up. There were many 16 year olds who joined the army under false pretences, and there were even known to be some 14 year olds.
