For more than a century, Australian soldier George Thomas Littleboy was lost in a land foreign to him.
- Private George Littleboy died as a prisoner of war in World War I, but his final resting place was unknown for more than 100 years
- A joint investigation by the Australian Defence Force and Fallen Diggers found he was buried as an unknown Australian soldier at Rue-Petillon Military Cemetery in France
- Private Littleboy’s 103-year-old niece Merle Donovan says she’s relieved he’s finally been found
He died as a prisoner of war during World War I, and, one by one, his loved ones died not knowing where he was buried — until a recent Fallen Diggers and Australian Defence Force (ADF) investigation exposed the truth.
