"Anzac Beach was a sight perhaps never before seen in \ modern war... and that strongly marked and definite entity, \ the Anzac tradition, had from the first morning, been partly created there." \ THE ANZAC BISCUIT STORY \ The ANZAC biscuit, as it is known today, came to take its special place in \ history during World War 1. \ Made with oats, coconut, golden syrup and no eggs, these biscuits had \ the unique ability to stay fresh for long periods of time, which meant that \ they could last the time it took to get to ANZAC soldiers fighting overseas. \ Baked by wives, mothers and sweethearts, these biscuits symbolise love \ and care from home. \ Today ANZAC biscuits are a tangible link to our heritage, a reminder of \ the values that shaped who we are today. \ .....
