    The remains of a New Zealand soldier killed in World War I have been identified more than a century after his death.

    Excavations of a Western Front battlefield have uncovered the remains, and remarkably well-preserved possessions, of Henry John Innes Walker.

    The area - in the West Flanders Langemark - was the site of the Second Battle of Ypres.

    After a gas attack on April 22, 1915, there was heavy fighting in the area.

    Walker, an Aucklander who had joined the British Army and rose to become a captain with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment's 1st Battalion, was killed in action on April 25, 1915 - at around the time the Anzacs landed several hundred kilometres away at Gallipoli.
