Beyond Gallipoli reminds us what happened behind the scenes of Gallipoli.  Thousands of sick and wounded ANZACs journeyed to Malta (which was known as the Nurse Island of the Mediterranean) for medical and hospital treatment.  It also reminds us of those buried ANZACs in Malta, the hospital ships, doctors and nurse volunteers, the role of the Red Cross, the Australian Hall (built in 1915) and more.

 

To remember those thousands involved in Beyond Gallipoli, South Australia will feature in the first ANZAC sports scheduled to be played in Malta between Australia, New Zealand and host, Malta.  The event is tentatively scheduled for 25th April 2020, after the traditional ANZAC service held in Pieta ‘Military’ Cemetary.

 

The Adelaide launch on the 16th of March 2019 will kick start the planning process, outline the first ANZAC Day sports program and will include special announcements throughout the evening.

 

Door and raffle prizes plus sports memorabilia will be available for auction.
