April 25th is the anniversary of the landing of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs) at Gallipoli in 1915. Over 7000 New Zealand soldiers were wounded at Gallipoli and 2721 were killed. The first Anzac Day took place on 25 April 1916. As time went on, the ceremony of remembrance was extended to the soldiers of the Second World War. It now honours all New Zealanders and Australians who have served in a military campaign. For the assignment students are asked to research two local people who died at Gallipoli. Many students choose George Crosley as student Emma Trail wrote an essay about him which was printed in the Bay of Plenty Times on 10 September 2003. Further references to Crosley and other soliders can be found either in the vertical file or wooden card catalogue drawers in the New Zealand Room and the online newspaper index accessible through the Tauranga City Libraries Newspaper Index
