Thomas Bennett

Thomas Bennett (1879 – 1960) Gallipoli padre
The Anzac legend is ruthlessly secular. If religious references appear at all, they are usually as profanity or the ritual presence of a chaplain burying the dead. But religion played an important part in the lives of many Anzacs

The Anzac legend is ruthlessly secular. If religious references appear at all, they are usually as profanity or the ritual presence of a chaplain burying the dead. But religion played an important part in the lives of many Anzacs. … These Anzac heroes were legends-and not just for their courage and endurance at Gallipoli. These men were also respected, and even loved, for their sturdy faith in God.
