What is an Anzac?

Anzac is an acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It was coined during the Gallipoli campaign in 1915 when Australian and New Zealand army divisions formed into a formation called a corps. When the divisions were transferred to the Western Front in 1916, two Anzac Corps were formed - I Anzac Corps and II Anzac Corps, however the eventual five Australian and one New Zealand divisions were shifted between those corps and other ones as the battle requirements dictated and the two Anzac Corps often had British divisions in them as well, and Australian divisions in British corps. So by 1918 the five Australian divisions were concentrated into an Australian corps, the two Anzac corps disbanded, and the New Zealand division allotted to a British corps. An Anzac Corps was formed in 1941 for the defence of Greece, comprising 6 Australian Division and 2 NZ Division. As Greece fell quickly, the Corps was evacuated and ceased to exist. The name has since been expanded to mean Australian and New Zealand soldiers and sometimes units. For example in Vietnam, one of the Australian battalions always had two NZ companies in it wand had the suffix (Anzac) added to its name. For the soldiers, the original participants at Gallipoli were subseqently called Anzacs. This in later years has often been used to describe all soldiers of the two countries where this is a useful descriptor. Since 1916 ceremonies have been held on 25 April each year to commemorate the landing at Gallipoli (the beach was later named Anzac Cove). This ceremony has been extended to cover all soldiers who died from both countries in all subsequent wars.
