Messines Ridge CWGC memorial

The remains of an unknown soldier from the First World War were discovered during excavations in April 2012 in Mesen, West Flanders. Based on objects recovered with the remains including unit insignia as well as the location of the find, the remains were accepted in August 2012 as that of an unidentified New Zealand soldier. A reburial service for the soldier will be held on the morning of Monday 25 February 2013 at the Messines Ridge British Cemetery in Mesen. The reburial service is open to members of the public.
