A Day To Remember, To Learn, And To Cherish


Tomorrow is Anzac Day – and this year is the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign when over 130,000 soldiers died, including 10,000 Anzacs. The BBC Website has a helpful article . The quote is from Bob Carr [Australian politician, former Foreign Minister]



I decided to ‘cherish my home and family’ by making some Anzac biscuits. I’ll leave these in the tin for Bob to enjoy whilst I am away in London for a couple of days. Gallipoli is on the NW corner of Turkey – it’s quite near to the old city of Troas, where the apostle Paul left his cloak [2 Timothy 4;13] but it’s a mighty long way from the Antipodes.


  1. Lovely post Angela. ANZAC Day is 25th April - or that is what it is in NZ and Australia.

    Ah ANZAC biscuits - I have fond memories of making these as a child in NZ!

    1. Ooops - I got the day wrong - the guy on the BBC said "Prince Charles arrived in Gallipoli today for the Anzac Day commemoration ceremony" - but he didn't specify the day as TOMORROW. Truly grateful to you for putting me right there - as a Kiwi, that's your area of expertise.

    2. No problem, with the time differences is easy to get confused, :-)

  2. thanks for remembering ANZAC day, Angela - this is always huge in NZ and even huger this time. All the best from Carole's Chatter

  3. Yes Ang a very special day both here in Australia and in New Zealand. Looking forward to watching the service from Gallipoli in a couple of hours.

    Cheers, Karen near Gympie
