Five and a half thousand Australians were casualties on 19 July 1916 at Fromelles the worst day in Australian military history. Many had no known grave until 2009 when a major search took place and this cemetery was created.

This is a great story, with Lambis Englezos' detective work to thank for finding the lost burial pits, governmental effort to exhume, identify and re-inter soldiers' remains, and local goodwill from the Village. Sad, as all these places are, but somehow peaceful. Also elating, in...More
