Description

Mr. Lambis Englezos will deliver a speech in regard to his research on the missing Australians in the Battle of Fromelles.

Mr. Englezos received the Order of Australia for his Fromelles work.

Lambis Englezos AM, amateur historian and school teacher was responsible for discovering mass war graves from World War 1 near Fromelles in France.

Lambis' interest in Fromelles developed from the respect he has for the survivors, some of whom he met in the 1990s. Since 2002, Mr Englezos, has gathered evidence to back claim that aerial photos sourced from the Imperial War Museum showed graves behind German lines in 1916 and recovered the missing soldiers.

The 2009 Queen's Birthday Honours List proclaims that Lambis Englezos had been appointed a Member of The Order of Australia, within the General Division, for 'Service to the community through research and advocacy roles relating to Australian soldiers of the Great War buried in Fromelles, France'.
