The Gallipoli Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum

More than 11,000 soldiers from New Zealand and Australia died in the ill-fated World War One battle.

Both countries now mark the start of the Gallipoli campaign in 1915 with a national day of Remembrance.

The service at the National Memorial Arboretum will take place at 12noon on Monday (April 25) in the Millennium Chapel, followed by a wreath laying ceremony at the Gallipoli Memorial.
