Hotspur is a small rural settlement in south-west Victoria between Heywood
and Digby and located on the Crawford or Smoky River.

Like many settlements it has a WW1 Avenue of Honour. Hotspur's Avenue
contains 40 trees dedicated to memory of local servicemen from WW1. The
Avenue has been restored and there will be a plaque unveiling ceremony at
Hotspur, 2:00pm, Saturday 23rd June 2001.

The list of Soldiers along with family connections and the original
planters of trees in 1918 can be found on the web at:

I would be keen to hear from anyone who may be connected with the families
of these soldiers or who may have any information about them or their families.

All visitors are most welcome.
