"The battlefields of Gallipoli [...] has become near-sacred soil." for who? –Doldrums(talk) 08:01, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

"Lest we Forget.". who's 'we'? –Doldrums(talk) 08:07, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

The figures were predicted (off national nine news - video edition (it can be seen on itunes) the lest we forget is just a common saying which pretty much means "we will remember them"

"predicted" or estimated? the article says so many were there, not that they are expected to be there. –Doldrums(talk) 10:43, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
  • "braving the 12°C (45°F)"? I don't know about Australia but in Europe, 12° is not considered to be particularly cold. --+Deprifry+ 11:56, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
  • In Australia 12°C is quite cold. What you must remember is, Australia is a very arid country. Suffering a huge drought, and often high 30°C's to low 40°C's temperatures.
Thanks, I know that but, to anyone, it is still cold - it is how you are dressed and if you are used to the temperatures - I know temperatures can get very cold but, even it you don't think it is the worst in history, it is still cold! Symode09 04:52, 28 April 2007 (UTC)


reported on this page are uncannily similar to the numbers in last year's article, out of which this article was created. i can't find these numbers in the sources provided and sources i can find report different numbers (5,000 people in Auckland[1] another says 20,000[2]; 8000 in Gallipoli[3], not 10,600). i'm unpublishing this article until these issues are sorted out. –Doldrums(talk) 12:20, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

I thing it is reasonable to assume the average of all reported statistics is accurate - this allows room for miscalculation / sensationalisation —Symode09 18:25, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
