Drummy, I regrettably have no further info on the 15, save that some excellent researchers here on the forum have submitted data to the MOD. The sad thing is with this case is that there was and continues to be a complete media blackout similar to both the CWGC and MOD. I understand that here in the UK there is a time-limit for the retention of human remains found as they were in this case of two years after which they must be interred. Whether this applies to British soldiers found abroad but now in the custody of the UK authorities I have no idea. If this law does apply then the remains will have to be reburied no later than November 2011.
