What The Hills?!


Apr 24, 2021

Get your tissues out for this one. 

In What The Hills this week I don't have my usual interview for you.  Instead I'm telling a story, about my great great uncle Charlie and the "Gallipoli Die-Hards".  I can't take all the credit for the episode this week.  Much is taken from the letters of Jack McCarthy, a friend of Uncle Charlie, who wrote home during the war.  Some is also from a story published in the Barrier Miner newspaper in Broken Hill.

I'd also like to acknowledge the Australian War Memorial and its treasure trove of information which I used to piece together the story.

I also have my favourite Anzac Biscuit recipe for you.  If you'd like to make your own, check out my source for the recipe:  https://www.abc.net.au/everyday/anzac-biscuits-with-rosemary-burnt-butter-and-honey-recipe

This episode is published early so you can hear it on Anzac Day.
