ANZAC OR CANBERRA?


Just a quick post... Being ANZAC day in Australia a search of Trove reveals the fervor of Australian society after the famous Gallipoli campaign in World War One. Today this clipping would probably make a good Canberra trivia contest question.

Q. What name did the Australian Senate propose to replace Australia's capital 'Canberra' with in 1916?  Answer - 'ANZAC'...

The Register - 19 May 1916
