Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Anzac Day, April 25, is a holiday to remember people who fought in war. What does ANZAC stand for?

Answer: Australian and New Zealand Army Corps

The ANZACs landed on the beach at Gallipoli on April 25 and fought there for almost a year. People in Australia and New Zealand wanted to remember the soldiers, so the holiday started right away. The holiday also reminds people that they are proud to live in their country. No work or school happens on Anzac Day, and many parades and events take place.

This question was written by player pusdoc, who lives in the United States so she doesn't get to attend any Anzac Day parades.
2. The series of battles which led to the start of Anzac Day took place in Gallipoli. What country, which is in both Europe and Asia, is Gallipoli in?

Answer: Turkey

Turkey is partly in the continent of Europe and partly in the continent of Asia. The area has a very important water passage that both armies wanted to control. This passage, called the Dardanelles, helps connect the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. Turkey was part of the Ottoman Empire at that time. The city of Constantinople, which is now called Istanbul, was also a prize both armies wanted.

This question was sailed into the quiz by player pusdoc from team Phoenix Rising.
3. Anzac Day honours those from Australia and New Zealand who took part in the 1915 Gallipoli battles. During what global war did this take place?

Answer: World War I

The Gallipoli Campaign was almost a year long, and happened in early World War I. It was supposed to weaken the Ottoman Empire by taking the area and opening the way to the Black Sea. Even though the goals were not met, the actions of the Australian and New Zealand troops became legend and April 25 quickly became a holiday.
Phoenix Rising's mike32768 of the Red Team finds it disrespectful to even attempt to say anything glib about the topic, so he'll leave it at that. And as an American he felt the least he could do was to spell it, "honour".
4. What is the tasty, sweet treat made using rolled oats and golden syrup that were sent by women's groups to the Australian and New Zealand soldiers during World War I?

Answer: ANZAC biscuit

The ingredients used to make ANZAC biscuits include rolled oats, flour, butter, golden syrup and sometimes dried coconut. This made a biscuit that kept well during the long journey to where the Australian and New Zealand soldiers were stationed. The name ANZAC biscuit is not allowed to be used without permission, and it is always a biscuit, never a cookie.

Red Team's smpdit has tasted an ANZAC biscuit and finds them very yummy.
5. Which flower is often worn on Anzac Day in New Zealand but is less likely to be seen in Australia on that day?

Answer: Red poppy

The red poppy is known around the world as a symbol to remember the soldiers who died in war or to show respect for those in the armed forces. The poppy was the first flower seen in the battlefields of Flanders after World War I. It is often worn on Anzac Day in New Zealand. The poppies arrived too late to New Zealand in 1922 to be worn on Armistice Day, a day to remember the soldiers who died in World War 1, so they were saved until Anzac Day. In Australia you are more likely to see the poppy being worn on Armistice Day, which is also known as Remembrance Day.

Red Team's smpdit salutes those who gave their lives.
6. Which gambling game, which uses a stick to toss two pennies, is played on Anzac Day?

Answer: Two up

The game two-up is similar to a game called cross and pile, that was played by early Australian convicts. During World War One the Australian soldiers used to play Two-up and in their memory, is now only played on Anzac Day. A flat stick called a kip is used to toss two pennies into the air and people try to guess which way they will land. Similar to heads and tails but with two coins not one. Sometimes one side of the coin is marked with a white cross so people can see it clearly.

Leith90 always guesses wrong at heads or tails, but tossed this question into the quiz anyway.
7. An important battle in the Gallipoli campaign took place in August 1915 and it includes a solitary, coniferous tree in its name. What is this battle in which Harold Walker led the ANZAC forces?

Answer: Battle of Lone Pine

The Battle of Lone Pine was fought from August 6-10, 1915 and it resulted in a win for the ANZACs over the army of the Ottoman Empire. Although the battle was a victory, it was primarily a trick to draw Ottoman forces away from the area where other battles were being fought. The Battle of Lone Pine is named for a Turkish pine tree that stood tall at the start of the battle.

This question was shaded into the quiz by Phoenix Rising teammate and Red Crew member Triviaballer as part of the team's 2022 World Tour.
8. What British politician who led England in World War II made a mistake in the First World War by stating that 50,000 soldiers and some seapower could topple the Ottoman Empire?

Answer: Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 to 1915 and later a winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. Although he is considered a hero for leading the United Kingdom during World War II as the nation's Prime Minister from 1940 to 1945, Winston Churchill resigned his position as First Lord of the Admiralty in 1915 after he badly underestimated the Ottoman Empire's strength at Gallipoli and made errors. Churchill was out of politics for about 20 years until the rise of the German Nazi party in the 1930s led him to call for Britain to fight this threat.

This question was written with blood, toil, tears and sweat (okay, maybe just a little research) by Phoenix Rising teammate and Red Crew member Triviaballer as part of the team's 2022 World Tour.
9. Anzac Day occurs every April 25 and the holiday's most solemn event is held early in the day. Which event is this?

Answer: Dawn Service

The Dawn Service began to remember those who served and died at Gallipoli, it has become a serious time of reflection on the suffering and sacrifices felt by members of the military in all wars.

It dawned on Phoenix Rising's Red Team member mike32768 that he should learn more about this topic. I hope he has done it service with this question.
10. John Simpson Kirkpatrick was a hero at Gallipoli, saving many hurt soldiers from the battle. An animal named Duffy helped Simpson. What sort of animal was Duffy?

Answer: Donkey

Simpson and his donkey are part of the Gallipoli legend. Simpson's leader had no idea where he was, but when he found out, he let him continue. It is not sure how many lives he saved, but he gave his own life, when he was shot and killed just four weeks later. The tale of Duffy the donkey is told in schools to help kids learn about the ANZAC story.

This question solemnly written by one of Phoenix Rising's Australian members, ozzz2002 who learned about Simpson's heroism when he was just a young schoolboy.
