"where the drunken Anzac major who had brought her"

Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. First active during the Battle of Gallipoli in World War I and disbanded in 1916, it resurfaced in Greece in 1941 when Australian and New Zealand forces combined again. Anzac troops were primarily active in the battles of Greece and Crete. They were not active again under the name until the Vietnam War.
