My parents owned a cafe in Ipswich Queensland.It was called Cafe Australia. During the war the cafe catered for American officers based at Amberly. I am their daughter and they often told me stories in relation to the war. Apparently there was a song written called "Pass the biscuits Marendy".On 04/04 there is a concert in Ipswich with a trip down memory lane called "Milk Bars and Bobby Socks" as it was at Marendys Greek Cafe.L shall be attending & if anyone has a copy of the song please let me know. Cheers Coula Marendy.

Based on the 1942 Spike Jones record, "Pass the Biscuits, Mirandy." The song, in turn, was based on the advertising jingle for "Pappy" O'Daniels' radio show ("Please Pass the Biscuits, Pappy"). See more
