    This happened about 5 years ago .... I never heard anymore ... did you ??

    The bodies of three Austrian soldiers killed in World War I have been found on an Italian glacier, almost perfectly preserved, an Italian museum says.
    The corpses were found at about 3,400m (11,500ft) on the mountain of San Matteo in the Trentino region.

    The area was the scene of high-altitude fighting between Austrian and Italian forces towards the end of the war.

    Historians believe the men may have died on 3 September 1918, during what was called "the great battle"
