The image usually associated with April 25th, 1915 is that of Australian soldiers charging bravely up the steep and barren slopes of Gallipoli. Less appreciated is the picture of the female nurses on that same day attending to hundreds of battered and bleeding men on the decks and in the confined wards of a hospital ship. Throughout World War I more than 3000 Australian and New Zealand women were battling the war from behind the scenes. April 25th looks into the lives of handful of these women and pays tribute to all those women who helped coin the term Anzac.
Based on letters home, diary entries, journal articles and memoirs from World War I, April 25th submerges itself into the lives of; Louise Mack, Ella Tucker, Muriel Wakeford, Grace Wilson, Alice Ross King, Clarice Daley and Olive Haynes and gives an insight into war life from a different perspective.
A fitting tale for the centenary of the landing at Gallipoli, PAK hopes you will join in the celebration of life of these remarkable Anzac Women.
