In the 1930s, after the Battle of Gallipoli, President Ataturk received a letter from the mothers of the fallen ANZAC soldiers requesting permission to visit the graves of their sons.

Ataturk later used these same words in a speech to the first Australians, New Zealanders and British to visit the Gallipoli battlefields.
