The names of 191 Australian World War I soldiers believed to be buried at Pheasant Wood in Fromelles, France, have been released.

Some 400 Australian and British soldiers are believed to have been buried by German forces following the Battle of Fromelles in July 1916.

Defence Science and Personnel Minister Warren Snowdon said the list of 191 Australian WWI soldiers released today was not definitive, and research into the group burial site at Fromelles would continue.
