New Zealand Post marks the centenary of The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps's participation in the World War One Gallipoli campaign, with a set of stamps.

The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps was formed in Egypt in 1915 and was disbanded a year later when the Anzac and Anzac II corps were formed. Despite its name, the Corps actually contained soldiers from many other countries

The sheetlet of ten stamps features ten '1915 Spirit of Anzac' stamps which feature archive photographs from the Great War, a stained glass window commemorating Gallipoli and wartime recruitment posters and illustrations.

The stamps are part of the New Zealand Post's Spirit of Anzac product series which also includes a silver proof coin, commemorative book, centenary pin, first day cover and miniature sheet.

To purchase Spirit of Anzac products, visit the New Zealand Post website.
