Fighting the Kaiser!

A new blog called Fighting the Kaiser: Coburg and the First World War  has started up to feature the volunteers from another suburb of Melbourne.  Coburg, of course, was in the invidious position of carrying part of the name of the Consort of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha - of nation now the enemy.  How would the good burgers of Coburg handle that, we wonder?


  1. Just popped over - good to see another Victorian WWI blogger out there.

  2. Stay tuned to the Finding the Kaiser blog. This very issue will be the subject of a blog entry early next week!
