Anzac Day Badge, possibly dating from World War I.

Anzac Day is an Australian national holiday to commemorate the landing at Gallipoli by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZACs) on 25 April 1915. The day was officially designated as 'Anzac Day' on 25 April 1916.

This badge is likely to have been sold as both a way to commemorate the Gallipoli landing and raise funds for the troops overseas. It is also possible that the badge was made for fundraising after the war to support returned veterans.
