The V.C. Corner Australian Cemetery
The cemetery V.C. Corner is the only exclusively Australian cemetery of the Great War in France. 410 Australian soldiers killed during the Battle of Fromelles in July 1916 are buried there. Since no body could not be identified, it was decided not to place individual graves, but to write on a memorial the names of all Australian soldiers who fell on the battlefields around Fromelles and having no known grave. Some of them have been identified following the discovery of mass graves in 2009 and now have a grave cemetery at Pheasant Wood.
