Family finds missing WW1 soldier
A Wangaratta family has finally received closure, after a local soldier killed in World War 1 has been identified.
Judith Douthie's great uncle, Captain Kenneth Malcolm Mortimer has been formally identified by the 2018 Fromelles Identification Board.
The process involves many specialists including anthropologists, archeologists, DNA specialists, as well as artefacts and historical records to aid the process.
Federal Minister for Defence Personnel Darren Chester, has told the Wangaratta Chronicle that "One hundred years later, Australia has not forgotten the service and sacrifice of these soldiers"
