hjmmigrant Chronicle is a collection of poems by Peter Skrzynecki, remembering the experiences of his family as they immigrated from post-war Poland to Australia.

Immigrant Chronicle was one of the five prescribed "Physical Journeys" texts in the compulsory New South Wales HSC English syllabus, and is now a prescribed poetry text for "Area of Study: Belonging" for 2009–14.

On the morning of Sunday, 25 April 1915, thousands of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, along with allies from France and Britain, landed on the beaches of Gallipoli. Ever since, the landing at Gallipoli has created a powerful image of national identity for Australians. The aim of this essay is to discuss and analyse the ideas about the national identity constructed by two different documents, an article written in 1915 by war correspondent C.E.W Bean and a letter written in 1914 by David Gordon. Both documents explain the courage and mateship of the Anzacs, constructing similar national images. In this essay the national identity/images constructed by both articles will be identified and the political/cultural/social circumstances contributing to these images will be recognised.
