Terang RSL will host a special concert on Sunday to commemorate the return of servicemen and women after World War I a century ago.
The Concert on the Green on Sunday includes live entertainment by Angela Kenna, The Sisters, Gary McKenzie, Marie Ewing, a bike display by the Military Brotherhood Military Motorcycle Club and a barbecue.
Organisers Andrew and Megan Hyatt both served in Afghanistan and said the Welcome Home concert was a way to honour the Australian servicemen and women all these years later.
The couple met at the Darwin Army Base in 2009.
Mr Hyatt served in Iraq for six months in 2017 and in Afghanistan for eight months as a diesel mechanic, while Mrs Hyatt served as a medic at a base hospital in Afghanistan. They are now living in Terang and are members of the sub-branch, helping to promote the support of veterans and their families.
"It's to welcome home the soldiers because they didn't get welcomed home," Mr Hyatt said.
"It's more of a commemoration because they're not around anymore and it's also a fundraiser for the W871 tram from Melbourne that we're converting into a replica recruiting station (to be placed as a memorial in the RSL gardens).
"The Military Brotherhood Military Motorcycle Club have got a fair few guys coming down and bringing their motorbikes. There will be a good show of bikes."
He said the couple understood the significance of recognising the servicemen and women and the role they played because of their own involvement.
"We got welcomed home nicely but it was a bit different for the other soldiers so we're definitely commemorating them which is very important."
Mr Hyatt said despite the war being over in 1918, Australian troops took the opportunity to travel around France and Britain, which was one of the incentives for them enlisting, while awaiting transport home in 1919.
Cities and towns had begun to build war memorials to Australian service personnel, with 60 monuments completed prior to 1918.
Today there are about 2000 memorials, which take many forms, inscribed with the names of the troops who were killed.
Mr Hyatt said the concert was a family day out and encouraged attendees to bring a picnic rug and enjoy the four local performers.
"Hopefully the community supports it," he said. "If it goes well it could be the first of many.
"It's been good, the community has been supporting us with donations and their time and things like that (for the event)."
It's on from 12pm to 4pm at the Terang RSL Memorial Garden.
