Formatted Abstract/Summary
By late 1915 Australian newspapers had begun to make reference to a phenomenon they called the “Anzac Day movement”. While most historians agree that there was, by April 1916, considerable public enthusiasm for a commemoration of the anniversary of the Gallipoli landing, the precise organisational origins of the many Anzac-related public events which occurred in Australia from late April 1916 remain unclear. Through the examination of Anzac Day events, this paper argues that the landscape of commemoration during the war years reflected a range of practices and imperatives.
