Well-Qualified to Comment on Antipodean Matters

On the flight we were offered a variety of newspapers. I chose Le Monde, and read a few articles, one on the rugby rivalry between Australia and New Zealand. Near the end of discussing the bitter dislike the nations have for each other's teams, it mentions previous cases of cooperation, for example at the Olympic games of 1908 and 1912, and particularly "the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps), which distinguished itself in 1915 at Gallipoli, in Italy, a battle commemorated in the two countries on April 25."

(English, because I can't remember how to type accents on this keyboard.)

  1. I want photographic proof - that is appalling (but perhaps it serves you right for choosing Le Monde so swankily)
