The Sands of Gallipoli 2009 Prominent Medals of Galliopoli Collection

They did not enlist for medals or glory, but their bravery, the ferocity of the fighting and the number of troops involved saw the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) awarded an unprecedented number of medals during the Gallipoli campaign.

At Gallipoli alone, 10 of the fabled Victoria Cross medals were awarded to Anzacs in just eight months - more than were awarded to Australian and New Zealanders in the three years of the Boer War.

The system for presenting medals was always a difficult process - how do you put a criterion on bravery in a time of war? The reality was that many acts of heroism went unseen or unreported and various commanders also had differing standards.
Nevertheless, from the esteemed Victoria Cross to the 'unofficial' Gallipoli Star, the medals of Gallipoli remain as recognition of the bravery, valour and selfless sacrifice made by our Anzacs during the most legendary battle in Australia's military history.
