Finding the Fallen - Fromelles 2009 (ABC News feature)

Watching episodes of this program, Finding the Fallen, on ABC last year, along with another program about anthropologic war site digs in Europe I was fascinated by what could be found. The second program in one or two cases found property of a particular soldier which was identifiable and the soldier's descendents or near relatives were found and shown the items found.

The ABC together with the Australian War Graves Commission, The Australian War Memorial and the Australian Army have produced a special on the Fromelles Fallen.

This is about an Australian dig in Flanders.

I too thought it was a thoughtful and quite powerful programme, so I created a link to your blog. Many thanks
