Bless them.




During World War I, the small town of Devenish and district had a population of around 300, but 50 of its citizens - one in six - signed up to serve.

Seven diggers died and never came home.

The war’s impact still resonates today. Many people in the wheat farming community, near Benalla in northern Victoria, have family ties to those 50 who served.

Farmer Kevin Mitchell said locals were keen to mark the centenary of the end of the war, but also to bring visitors to the town ‘‘and make it a bit more vibrant’’.
