Unknown SoldierPrint Page
A statue of the Unknown Soldier commemorates those who served in World War One and represents all Australians who have been killed in war.
Plans to honour an unknown Australian soldier were first put forward in the 1920s but it was not until 1993 that one was at last brought home. To mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the First World War, the body of an unknown Australian soldier was recovered from Adelaide Cemetery near Villers-Bretonneux in France and transported to Australia.
