During the day, Anzac Day events were heavily visited throughout Sydney, particularly at the Harbord Diggers Club in Freshwater, North Sydney, with massive crowds coming together for two-and-one drinks – an annual tradition.
The crowds included people of all ages and backgrounds, from veterans and current soldiers, and from women to children.

Reportedly, the first recorded two-up games took place among British prisoners in the late 1790s.
The game is supposed to be a descendant of & # 39; pitch and go & # 39; where a single coin was turned in the air and gambled on the outcome.
Two-up became hugely popular with Australian troops during the First World War and has since become an Anzac day tradition.
