The Army immediately commissioned an inquiry, at least one of the court being in attendance at the funeral. One of the measures undertaken by the inquiry was to explode two other dugouts, one with 10 lb (about 5 kgs) of explosive and the other with the full 110 lb. The file in Melbourne contains a series of photographs of the original site and the experimental sites. Below are some photos not reproduced in the book:

These photos of the funeral came to me via Wal Fife.
