Anzac treasure found in Bendigo





A GOLDMINE of Australian military history has been uncovered in Bendigo. The unique material includes hundreds of film negatives more than 90 years old that had been stored in an old biscuit tin in a garage since the end of World War I.

The photos were taken by twice-wounded Jack Grinton, of Bendigo, and include shots from the Somme and Villers-Bretonneux in France, where some of the deadliest fighting took place.

The collection includes the camera used by Sgt Grinton -- against all regulations -- to record his war.
