23rd December 1915

One of the Christmas billies distributed from Melbourne's Alexandria Club, bearing the
image of a kangaroo knocking out a Turkish soldier at Gallipoli - the inscription reads,
"This bit of the world belongs to us! Gallipoli"  20,000 of these billies were distributed
to troops through the WWI theatres of war in late 1915.
