Happy ANZAC Day (Observed)

In our studies about World War I we learned that on every April 25th the countries of Australia and New Zealand honor the memory of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC), and their sacrifice at Gallipoli. And a part of that celebration is making ANZAC Biscuits (cookies to you and me). Apparently these resilient cookies were sent over by wives and mothers to the soldiers serving in Turkey. We made these as part of our ANZAC day celebration, but we didn't get off from school, Dudeboy notes.

Did Malc receive his injury (the sticking plaster ((isn't that what the aussies and kiwis would call it)) on his forehead) at Gallipoli?

No, that head wound was received in The Battle of Hot Tempura Batter.
