Victoria Cross Graves Elsewhere

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.
