In some cases, a citation (a quote showing how it was used at the time) is also included. In communications, particularly telephone communications and code messages, signals used a system of pronunciation, for clarity and to prevent misunderstanding. In post-war Australia, it was used in a more general way to suggest a person or thing was missing, and sometimes occurs in the phrase ‘up in Annie’s room and behind the clock’ (AND). The Provost Corps was originally named ‘Anzac Provost Corps’. This was the abbreviation used when the Australian and New Zealand soldiers were formed into the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps prior to their landing at Gallipoli in April 1915. Attested in Digger Dialects and Lawson, suggesting that it might have been popular with Australians; Partridge notes arse a-peak as a lesser-used Services term. This is otherwise unattested, but the variation ‘arsy-varsy’ is attested in OED and Partridge as slang dating from the 18th century. As Near as Damn It Closely approximating the ideal.

Some other examples of signalmen’s pronunciations are ‘beer’ for ‘b’, ‘emma’ for ‘m’ and ‘pip’ for ‘p’. The term ‘Anzac’ also implied gallantry, another reason for its sarcastic application to the Military Police. I was asked by General Headquarters to suggest a name for the beach where we had made good our precarious footing, and then asked that this might be recorded as ‘Anzac Cove’ – a name which the bravery of our men has now made historical, while it will remain a geographical landmark for all time. Of special importance in Australia (AND) but also used more widely (OED). Entries with * are those that are identical to Downing's . Our eight months at ‘Anzac’ cannot help stamping on the memory of every one of us days of trial and anxiety, hopes, and perhaps occasional fears, rejoicings at success, and sorrow – very deep and sincere – for many a good comrade whom we can never see again.
