"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives...

You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country, therefore rest in 
peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us 
where they lie side by side. Here in this country of ours...

You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away 
your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bossom and are in peace. After 
having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."

Mustafa Kemal ATATURK
ANZAC Memorial, 1934.
