In May 2009 archaeologists began to excavate the remains of 250 British and Australian soldiers, buried behind German lines after the Battle of Fromelles in July 1916 – undiscovered, for nearly a century until an Australian historian found evidence to confirm the graves, and men, were there.

This commemorative publication tells the story behind the search for these men, how they died, and the extraordinary efforts to give them the final dignity in death their sacrifice so richly deserves – in the first new Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemetery to be built in more than fifty years.


Published in 2010 by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Berkshire, England, this full colour beautiful book is being distributed by Australian Scholarly Publishing.
