Join Avondale Conservatorium’s ensembles in a celebration of William “Fighting Mac” McKenzie, a Salvation Army chaplain who became enshrined in the hearts of the Anzacs.
An Anzac chaplain worshipped by soldiers despite being a wowser shows the influential role Christians played in the Great War, a new biography reveals.
Avondale honours Anzacs.
Ask Australians to name the most famous Anzac of World War I and most will probably answer, “Simpson, the man with the donkey.” While Simpson is a household name, the soldiers who fought in the war would give a different answer: Captain William McKenzie.
The Seven Network in Australia will broadcast another Anzac Day-themed episode produced in part by an Avondale academic for a Christian television program.
