The remains of two World War I soldiers who were killed in action in France nearly 100 years ago are to be laid to rest at a military cemetery later. The remains of Lt John Pritchard and Pte Christopher Douglas Elphick were discovered in 2009 by a French farmer clearing his field.

The men were killed on 15 May, 1917, during an enemy attack near Bullecourt. Descendents of the two soldiers will attend the ceremony in which the men will be given full military honours.
