A MOUNTED soldier, resplendent in fresh and clean khaki complete with slouch hat and the rising sun on his lapels, cooees for reinforcements.

The image, courtesy of the National Library of Australia, remains a powerful piece of war propaganda.

It was a call for the young men still on Australian shores to join their countrymen in Gallipoli.

In tomorrow's Warwick Daily News, the Weekend magazine takes a closer look at the uniforms of First World War soldiers and how the khaki and slouch hat became legendary.

Weekend also follows in the footsteps of the fallen to Gallipoli and, in travel, to the Kokoda Track. And a golden syrup slice, and cheesecake, in easy eating takes inspiration from the Anzac biscuit.

This delicious slice uses the same ingredients as the popular Anzac biscuit.

Weekend also chats to an Afghan refugee who went from fleeing the Taliban to studying her PhD in Brisbane, and our Stay At Home Mum works out how to make a buck quickly.

All this, and more, is in the Weekend magazine.
