Centenary celebrations related to the First World War (1914-1918) will be taking place throughout the 2014-2018 period, but 2015 will likely see the most important celebration in Australia and New Zealand: the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli Landings on the Gallipoli Peninsula in present day Turkey (then part of the Ottoman Empire), which marked the baptism of fire for the first contingent of troops from Australia and New Zealand.
