Just found this article that might be of interest.

Twenty Australian soldiers who were killed while fleeing Japanese prisoner of war camps during World War II will be posthumously awarded the Commendation for Gallantry.

The article also refers to the Australian Defence Honours & Awards Tribunal Website which makes for some very interesting reading. Also contains a number of reports than can be download.
