After a marathon effort of close to 30 hours traveling to get back to Melbourne from Tucson (delays included) I awoke to ANZAC day here in Australia. At dawn this morning in almost every country town and city across the country people gathered to remember Australia's war dead.
Given today's date, I thought I would dedicate today's blog to the ANZACs and pose a few questions for American readers of TKZ on the meaning and significance of the day. Here goes...
- What does ANZAC stand for?
- Which famous battle are the ANZACs known for?
- What did the wives and daughters of the ANZACs send them (hint here, I can provide a recipe for them!)
