    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.

    Perfectly researched, exquisitely rendered, no reader could fail to be moved by this story of Australian and New Zealand soldiers.
