The remains of 33 Australian military personnel and their dependents who died during conflicts in South East Asia are being returned to Australia.
The operation is the largest single repatriation of remains in Australian history.
Many of those being returned were Vietnam War casualties. All were buried in cemeteries in Malaysia or Singapore.
They were disinterred at the request of their families and will be returned to Australia for burial.
Thirty-two coffins were flown from Malaysia on Thursday, with one further coffin being returned from Singapore.
