Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A tender, moving story of a child waiting at home for the return of his father from serving in WWI. During World War I, Australian and New Zealand soldiers on the front were sent Christmas care packages in a tin billy. The Anzac Billy is the heartwarming story of a little boy packing a billy with all his father's favourite things - added to by mum and grandma - even though he realises there is no way that the billy can actually go to a particular soldier.

"I'm filling our Anzac billy. It's full of dad's favourite things. A billy can't be posted, delivered on a bike, or sent in a car, truck or train. It has to be loaded on a ship with all those Anzac billies for all the soldiers" --back cover.
