Just after ANZAC Day I visited a school in the northern suburbs of Melbourne.

Man, were these kids sorted! They knew all about Gallipoli and WWI. 

I took some WWI supplies including: tinned jam, hard tack biscuits and tinned corn beef. The latter can still be purchased today … probably little changed. I’m not sure how the soldiers stored their hard tack biscuits but I do know why enlisting soldiers needed to have good teeth!

This lovely librarian was a fan of Seadog – she has a seadog of her own at home. She brought the best photo series to school to show her seadog at the beach.
