My Kiwi mate insists it stands for Australia New Zealand Auxiliary Corps, though all over the net including wikipedia the second A stands for Army. However In Tom Brooking's "A History of New Zealand" he does say it's Auxiliary. Anyone any better information?

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and
New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served". Observed on 25 April each year, Anzac Day was originally devised to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served in the Gallipoli Campaign, their first engagement in the First World War.

cheers all just got home from having a few beers with said kiwi! fortunately it didn't arise but he brought some anzac biscuits!
Hope you shared the traditional ANZAC 'Gunfire Breaklfast'with your Kiwi mate. Traditionally a sprig of Rosemary is worn on ANZAC day. That commemorates the wild Rosemary they found growing abobe the cliffs at ANZAC Cove etc. during the Gallipoli campaign.
Today is the only day when the cops turn a blind eye to ANZAC vets playing 'Two-Up'. An illegal gambling game that was played in the trenches and estaminets .
Thank you the ANZACS and other Commonwealth Forces.
