B is for Bully Beef

Bully Beef is the name of a canned meat that was given to soldiers in the field. When the soldiers landed at Gallipoli the only food they had to eat was whatever they had carried ashore in their packs.

For several days all they had to eat was a little bully beef, some tea, sugar and a few very hard biscuits from the ship.

Look in your lunch box. Would you swap lunch with an ANZAC?
