V.C. Corner Australian Cemetery and Memorial

Military cemetery (FROMELLES)

Next to Memorial Park, VC Corner Cemetery is dedicated to the Australian soldiers who died in the Fromelles Offensive of 19 July 1916. Two mass graves accommodate the bodies of more than 400 unknown soldiers and the memorial bears the names of 1,208 Australians reported lost in action. In 2009 seventy of these lost soldiers were identified from remains uncovered during archaeological excavations in nearby Pheasant Wood. Today they are interred in Fromelles Pheasant Wood Military Cemetery.
