Victoria Cross Graves Elsewhere (2)

This page is for South Africans who were awarded the Victoria Cross and who were buried outside of South Africa,  or are commemorated on a memorial elsewhere. It also includes men who were awarded the VC for service during the Anglo Boer Wars and Zulu War.  I have also included some VC graves that are special to me for various reasons. 

Special thanks must go Mark Green for the images that he has allowed me to use. Mark is also the owner of Victoriacrossonline website. Also special thanks to Kevin Brazier, author of “The COMPLETE VICTORIA CROSS, A Full Chronological Record of All Holders of Britain’s Highest Award for Gallantry”, who was exceptionally helpful in my grave hunting, Images open in a new page or new window, links open in VConline.
