The skull of the unidentified soldier is to be handed back to the Turkish people. After being given to police earlier this year an inquiry was held by the Victorian State Coroner.

After considering forensic and anecdotal evidence, the State Coroner last month found that the remains were those of a Turkish soldier who met his death in 1915, during the course of combat between Turkish and Allied Forces on the Gallipoli Peninsula.
