Booklet to Honour 100 Years of ANZAC

In remembrance of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli 100 years ago, we want to offer a booklet written by David called ‘Up the Track with JESUS – Reflections on KOKODA for Men.’ It was on the KOKODA Track in 1942 that the ANZAC spirit, begun at Gallipoli in 1915, was so clearly demonstrated.
