Found a couple of articles on Trove about 'Digger', you may have seen them already. Both essentially the same,
Hobart Mercury - Monday 9 December 1918 page 8
Adelaide Advertiser - Saturday 28 December 1918, page 6

Thank you Lindsay. No I hadn't seen them.
I'm surprised he survived the gassing. Tough dog.

Fantastic story Janilye. Dogs are wonderful... What unconditional Love they give to us. Digger was a brave, rugged, and loyal warrior.

I've had an account here for over a year but haven't been active. Now that the "Blog" idea is coming to the forefront - I am probably hooked and in the boat and posts like this would be why I would frequent this site.
Its more than the dry names,dates and tombstones. There are amazing stories just waiting to be told. This is one of them. I would love to run into something like this during my family research. What a great story - and so well penned.

TLBoehm, I have enjoyed reading your writings. Very crisp and informative. Keep them coming. A new delightful voice for FTC.
