WWI shell unearthed in Brighton Victoria Australia

Paul Millar
PART of an artillery shell unearthed during building work in the bayside suburb of Brighton has been identified as a relic from World War One.
Two builders uncovered the brass-topped ordnance while digging a shallow trench along the fence of a property in Lawrence Street earlier this week.
One of the diggers had completed National Service and immediately realised what it was and contacted police, who in turn contacted the Army.
