    Tough call...but I'd have to say Canada for the following two reasons:
    1. Vimy demonstrated for the Allies that a carefully planned assault with creeping barrage could have a telling effect. This was a relatively new concept. Gallipoli only served to remind the allies that assualts without proper artillery support oft go awry.

    2. Dieppe provided many "lessons learned" for D-Day.

    I agree with Jack about Vimy and Dieppe, however Gallipoli was excuted by British planners. The assualt on Beershaeba is a better example. Planned and excuted by an Australian and won by Australian Light Horse.

    Canada wins at: hockey, snow, ice & glaciers, French, poutine, ice wine, Inuits, undefended borders, comedians, skiing, mountains, bears and pine trees.

    Beer and rock 'n roll are a tie.

    Australia wins at: palm trees, beaches, water skiing, bikinis, weather, poisonous critters and bugs, spiders, marsupials, Aboriginals, and sunburns.

    Gallipoli was hardly an ANZAC campaign. They were a minority presence. On a much smaller scale but of more significance to the development of military skills is Le Hamel.

    Canada has the largest French speaking population that never surrendered to anybody.

      Australia. Where else can you sign up for Home Service and find yourself fighting the Japanese in a New Guinea jungle?

        You can pick up an echidna, but you shouldn't try that with a porcupine.
