Brothers in Arms

The Turkish government is seeking World Heritage listing for Anzac Cove – where the WW1 battle of Gallipoli took place. Turkey believes the site to be of lasting moral value, in that it embodies a unique bond between former combatants. “Many countries had invaded Turkey in the past,” says ambassador to Australia, Tansu Okandan, “but in only one case have we allowed the foreign power to give its own name to a part of Turkey. That case is Anzac Cove.”
