A century after they died in the Battle of Fromelles, nine Australian soldiers have been formally identified.
The soldiers' bodies were recovered from unmarked graves near Pheasant Wood in France 102 years after the deadly WWI battle.
Their re-burial in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery at Fromelles provides closure for families whose missing members were lost after the war, Defence Personnel Minister Darren Chester says.
New headstones will be unveiled during the annual commemoration ceremony in July.
"One hundred years later, Australia has not forgotten the service and sacrifice of these soldiers," Mr Chester said on Monday.
There are still 91 Australian soldiers yet to be identified as part of the Fromelles Project which has already formally identified 159 Australians killed in the 1916 battle.
