A few general items from newspapers and a magazine in the  1917 - 1919.  These were retained by Vernon Brown.  The paper is not in good condition, but I include them here as they may be of interest to others who  have relatives mentioned.  - Robert Hallowes Brown, August 2008.

This first item appeared in a Scottish newspaper and stresses VCB's Scottish heritage and links to Scotland.

Below is a listing of University of Melbourne medical graduates involved in WW1.

but are not listed here.

Here is a photo of the monument that was erected some time after the war as a memorial
 to the Australians who served and died near Villers-Bretonneux.
