Fromelles France WW1

The Fromelles Project  is a project to identify the bodies of Australian servicemen who were killed in the WW1 battle using collected DNA of relatives who lost family members in that ill-fated battle. I previously wrote about this project here.

Our friend Wendy has since been advised that her uncle’s body has been identified and will soon be buried in a military cemetery with a suitable headstone marking his final resting place.  Wendy has applied for a passport to visit Fromelles and his grave.

Wendy was interviewed by a TV station.  Here is a link to that.  May not play outside of Australia.
