Does any body know if war graves from the boar war have ever been marked in some way.

Hi Tony,

What do you mean by marked? Do you mean marked with a gravestone? Or, remembered/acknowledged via a list of graves?

Hi Sylvia,

I was hoping that the actual spot might might be marked with a stone or something.

But I wasn't sure if the actual graves location would even be known. I have asked at the war memorial in Canberra a couple of times and have not been able to get an answer.

Cheers Tony

Have you tried Veterans' Affairs?:https://www.dva.gov.au/commemorations-memorials-and-war-graves/reme... includes some info on the Boer war and a contact page for "Australia's war dead commemorative enquiries": https://www.dva.gov.au/commemorations-memorials-and-war-graves/offi...And who knows you might be lucky with this other site. It contains some graves among the many shrines: https://familyhistoryact.org.au/boer_war/index.php

Thank you

I have tried the first one but that was a while ago and I think they have been updating boar war info so I will try again.

Hi Sylvia

Thank you so much I ended up contacting War Graves  through your contact and they have sent me a Photo of Alex's Head stone and some Information.

Thanks so much for your help I have been trying to find out some Information for along time.

Cheers Tony
