27 July 2011

On 19 July 2011, 95 years after The Battle of Fromelles, hundreds of people gathered in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's newest cemetery - Fromelles (Pheasant Wood) Military Cemetery in northern France.

Amongst those who paying their respects to the fallen were relatives of 14 of the Australian soldiers, newly identified by name from amongst the 250 soldiers who lie in the cemetery.

In this film, some of those relatives tell of what coming to Fromelles means to them and we also hear from the man who has overseen this complex project on behalf of the Commission.
