191 Great War Diggers named

On 2 April 2009, Minister for Defence Science and Personnel, the Hon Warren Snowdon MP, released a list of First AIF soldiers believed to be buried at Pheasant Wood. Compiled by Professor Peter Dennis, the list is not considered to be definitive and may in fact need to be amended as further information comes to light. This is not the first occasion the number of Australians involved in the group burial at Fromelles has been revised and consequently it is imperative the Commonwealth Government moves to support the Red Cross digitization project and establishes a permanent JPAC style operation to assist with recovery and identification on an ongoing basis. Following is a link to the LIST OF SOLDIERS on the website of the Defence Department, http://www.defence.gov.au/fromelles/files/buried.pdf.
