    This is the quote of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder of Modern Turkey & his first president and Commander of Ottoman Forces in Gallipoli where he gave critical decisions which decisively changed the battle in favour for Ottomans, about ANZAC forces who fought in Gallipoli:

    "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 far away 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."

    Nowadays, ANZAC Forces fought at Gallipoli accepted as one of the most honorable & bravest opposition in Turkish Military History and it's great to see such an unfortunate event created a very strong bond and friendship between our countries.
