Caring for the remains of Fromelles fallen [with video]
Five burial pits dating from WW1 have been identified near Fromelles in northern France after several years of research. They are believed to contain the remains of between 250 and 400 British and Australian soldiers, buried behind German lines after the Battle of Fromelles in July 1916. Louise Lowe from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission explains how the remains will be treated and taken care of in future.
