Today, it is 94 years ago that a battle was fought during the First World War at the French village of Fromelles. A burial pit containing the remains of the dead was discovered in 2008, and the task of identifying them is still on-going. This morning, a service is conducted at Fromelles for the reburial of the remains of an unknown soldier. Watching the ceremony live on BBC News, most impressive. I link to the BBC News website for background information.
