The young diggers were buried together at the Wagga War Cemetery after Australia's largest military funeral was held in the town.

The Wagga Daily Advertiser has done a tremendous job of commemorating their service, these photos are from the Advertiser's report where you'll find the details of a memorial ceremony to be held at Kapooka today.

Thank you for your service men.

At the going down of the sun,

And in the morning, 

We will remember them.

LEST WE FORGET
