Victoria Cross graves in Southern Africa

These images of Victoria Cross Graves and memorials in Southern Africa, and of Victoria Cross graves of South Africans, have been taken by a variety of photographers and I would like to thank them all for their contributions. Some are linked to the relevant Egssa pages directly, and that is because I do not have permission to use the actual photograph, but can only link to the image. There are still a number of graves out there that have not been photographed, so if you see one, grab a pic, because tomorrow it many not be there anymore.
