What is a Fuzzy Wazzy

Fuzzy Wazzy is the name given to all islanders and the name was used by Aussie soldiers during the wars. The Aussies most commonly referred to the New Zealanders as Fuzzy Wazzies but gave the name 'Angles' to the Papua New Guinean war carriers. They were the 'Fuzzy Wuzzy Angles' to the Aussie soldiers during the Kokoda Campaign.

In my book 'Army Of Monsters: Aussie Pride' Conversations of the Fuzzy Wazzies and the Fuzzy Wazzy Angles come up, but only in my third book do the Fuzzy Wazzies make an appearance and stand beside the Aussie diggers on the frontline of war.
