Collingwood will play Essendon in the traditional AFL ANZAC Day football match and
I will remember my grandmother who died 25th April 2003 age 96.
The oven is on early and the smell of ANZAC biscuits cooking will soon fill the kitchen.
The acronym ANZAC was coined in 1915 when Australian and New Zealand troops were training in Egypt.
The word ANZAC was eventually applied to all Australian and New Zealand soldiers in World War 1. The term is particularly associated with the landing at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915
Anzac biscuits received their name during the First World War, when biscuits were made without eggs so they would keep longer for the soldiers.
