Victorian soldier settlement records

Battle to Farm   

This site was produced by the Public Record Office of Victoria and includes 10,000 Victorian Soldier Settlement scheme records. Under the government scheme, thousands of returned soldiers leased farming land across Victoria between 1919 and 1935.  The site is searchable by name and geographic location. There are interviews, photographs and videos.  You can help by transcribing digitised handwritten letters to make them searchable online.
