Twenty Australian WWI soldiers identified

The Assistant Minister for Defence, The Hon Stuart Robert MP, today announced the names of a further 20 previously unidentified Australian soldiers who died at the Battle of Fromelles in 1916.
Speaking at Parliament House, Mr Robert said the identifications reflected Defence’s commitment to service personnel from all conflicts in Australia’s history.
“In the lead up to the Anzac Centenary, it is only fitting that we recognise and remember these soldiers who left for war almost 100 years ago, never to return home to their loved ones,” Mr Robert said.
