However much the Brits, the Aussies, and the Kiwis enjoy a bit of banter about cricket and rugby, the British won't forget that these young men spilled blood for us, a long way from home.
A nice quote from Ataturk, in 1934.
"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 living in our bosom and are in peace. Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."
