Dear who ever is fighting,
I hope you will not lose because your wives and children is begging you to win and I am going to TRUST your wives and children but those who is fighting in the beaches at Gallops in Turkey BOOM!!!! BOOM!!!! BOOM!!!! went the bomb “oh no”,said the captain “the people is dieing” go go go GO and hide from them “fire in the hole” the captain said to the crewel sliders “take cover” it means to go on a shelter and protect yourself from the gun fire and don’t die from it. It was New Zealand vs Australia they take of and went to fight and it was World War One we especially remember the soldiers who died on the 25 fight. But it seems most likely that the first Anzac Biscuit were made by the mothers ,wives,and girlfriends left behind when the soldiers went off to war. These woman wanted to send food parcels to the men's serving overseas. The food parcels were carried in navy ships, which took two months to arrive and had no refrigerators. So the food in the parcels had to be long~lasting as well as tasty and healthy. The soldiers were already issued with army biscuits instead of bread. Although they lasted well, they were so hard the men could hardly eat them. They could often grind them up to make porridge or stews. The new biscuits were softer and were cheap and fairly easy to get. They did not contain eggs, which might go off and were hard get in wartime. The biscuits were called “soldiers’ biscuit”, but after Gallops, they were renamed Anzac biscuits. Today, you can find lots of different recipes for Anzac biscuits. Some have nuts,spices, or dried fruit for extra flavour. I hope you don’t go and check if they are coming but if they are coming to check they are going to kill you because your going to die protect your~self so don’t go to check. The nickname “cavalier” comes from the Spanish caballero, meaning mounted soldier. The name suggested that the person was foreign, and royalist soldiers found this insulting. Parliamentarians were called “round~heads”. This suggested that they were apprentices, who wore short hair. Men on both sides wore long hair, and it was rude to calla man a “round~head” because it meant that he was a worker of low status. FOOD: The daily ration of “marching food”was one pound of round, hard biscuits or bread and one pound of either cheese or meat to eat with them. Soldiers were given knapsacks to carry their food but had to supply their own plates and cutlery. RAISING ARMIES At the of the Wars of the Roses, the law said that all men must own as much armour and weapons as they could afford and be prepared to serve their county as soldiers for 40 days every year. Noblemen, like Sir Thomas Burgh, were asked to provide a certain number of soldiers to serve the king, many of whom were their servants. Edmund was one of Sir Thoma's cooks. He Wear a Jakie, which was a jacket made of as many as 30 layers of linen, which acted as padding. Jakie's prevented arrow wounds, and were the cheapest and most common form of armour. The blow~like object hanging from Edmund’s belt is a buckler.
