Episode Info:

This special extended episode is a tad more serious than our usual fun-filled shows, but there’s lots to learn for kids and adults! And if you know a teacher who could use this episode, please share it with them – and with any other friends.

We go to an ANZAC service in Australia, where World War One is particularly remembered. Then we go to Hong Kong, which was invaded during World War Two, so remembrance there focuses on that era. We then return to Australia for our interview with Major Matina Jewell.

We are grateful to Lindisfarne Anglican College for allowing us to visit their ANZAC assembly, and thanks go to their special guest, Major Matina Jewell (retired) for the interview. Recurring at points throughout this episode is the sound of Lindisfarne’s School Marching Band, led by Mr Dale Norton. And thanks also to Sergeant Kelvin Fawcett (retired).

Questions for after you’ve listened:

  1. What does A-N-Z-A-C - ANZAC - stand for?
  2. Why is November 11 an important date for remembering people from wars?
  3. What happened at Gallipoli in WWI?
  4. What is the Last Post?
  5. Which country is the Menin Gate in?
  6. What colour are poppies?
  7. Who wrote the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’?
