WWI soldiers bodies found at Fromelles
Private military researcher Lambis Englezos' protracted lobbying with respect to suspected burial pits at Pheasant Wood has finally been vindicated. Latest news reports from the excavation, which is being supported by French and British authorities and a previously unheard of panel known as the Fromelles Evaluation Group (FEG), confirm that human remains have been found. Though not certain of the nationalities involved, Defence Science and Personnel Minister Warren Snowdon suggests the discovery yesterday morning, supports the contention that Australian soldiers are buried in this significant WWI battlefield and heritage site.
