Milne’s remains were found in 2013 by an archaeological team that was surveying a field outside Arleux-en-Gohelle, France, prior to the construction of a housing estate.
Milne will be buried at a cemetery outside the community later this year by his regiment.
“Like far too many soldiers who fought in France during the First World War, Sgt. Milne gave his life in service to Canada,” Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr said in a news release.
