In January 1916 a public meeting of Brisbane citizens voted to establish an ANZAC Day Commemoration Committee to instigate a nationwide, solemn day of public remembrance. “ANZAC” was the name given to the combined force of First Australian Imperial Force and New Zealand Army troops who landed on Turkey’s Gallipoli Peninsula at around dawn on 25 April 1915, nine months after the outbreak of World War I. On every 25th day of April for over 100 years “ANZAC Day” has been observed in Australia and New Zealand.

This series consists of two Anzac Day Commemorative Committee Receipt Ledgers held by the Premier and Chief Secretary's Department, which record cash payments and Treasury cash bonds as inward contributions from various Anzac branch divisions all over Brisbane and Queensland. The inward cash payments also note interest increments. The ledgers also contain payments as expenditure totals for various expenses: for example, stationery, advertising, newspaper advertisements, badges and dishonoured cheques. In some cases a reconciliation of both is provided.
