How to find a fallen Digger: fascinating interview with Dennis Frank

When the team at the Fallen Diggers Association found Lance-Corporal Vivian George Taylor in an unmarked grave in Villers-Bretonneux, one of the first people Dennis Frank called was his nephew.

Lance-Corporal Vivian George Taylor Jnr is in his nineties now, 

‘He was in tears when we first rang to say ‘We’ve found your uncle’,’ Mr Frank told Ross and John this morning.

‘That’s the best part of the job.’

Mr Frank is volunteer with the Fallen Diggers Association.

He’s found 17 ‘lost diggers’. 

There’s currently 18,000 Australians who died in WWI and have no grave, and 7000 whom have a grave, and we don’t know who they are.
