ANZAC stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corp and we remember the fallen on the day of the retreat from Gallipoli in Turkey during the First World War. Dawn services, beer for those who want it and veterans march down the main street.
I was going to take a picture of my ANZAC biscuits (translation: cookies), but as usual, they did not turn out. This supposedly easy recipe continues to defeat me. I mean, they're basically oatmeal cookies.
So, instead of a pretty photo, I have a poem.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
- Laurence Binyon
