If you are not a member of the:

Michael Hooker Microscopy Facility Web site - historical


A memorial to an enemy commander on Anzac Parade. Officially the area is declared Turkish territory in 1985.
April 25 ANZAC Day (1915) - "Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours ... You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."
Kemal Atatürk
