Remains of an unknown Lancashire Fusilier were found here in May 2005 during archaeological excavations on the former Ypres-Roulers railway, 300m from Tyne Cot cemetery. On 9 October 1917 six battalions of the Lancashire Fusiliers took part in a final push to take the railway and the ridge at Poelkapelle. 307 men were killed in action; 247 ofthem have no known grave and are commemorated on the rear wall of the cemetery.
The Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917 unveiled a plaque on the spot where he was found and where a preserved section of the wartime railway has been restored. This now forms part of a walking and cycle path.
