Four Australian soldier guards were killed during the escape. at the time the escape was cloaked in secrecy and for many years afterwards. Two of the Australian guards were awarded the George Cross for Valour seven years after the event.

The corner's inquest into the 235 deaths were never revealed.
Very concise.
