New Fromelles exhibition opens at Imperial War Museum

05 July 2010

A new exhibition, organised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, tells the fascinating story of the 250 Australian and British soldiers who were found in several mass graves at Fromelles in northern France in 2008.

Over the past two years, the soldiers have been carefully exhumed and reburied in the CWGC's new purpose-built cemetery at Fromelles, the first such cemetery to be built in 50 years.

This video shows the new exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, London, and talks to relatives of the men who fell at Fromelles, as well as some of those experts who've worked on the project.
