Does any body know if war graves from the boar war have ever been marked in some way.
What do you mean by marked? Do you mean marked with a gravestone? Or, remembered/acknowledged via a list of graves?
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.
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
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.
There are war graves listed among other graves on this site:
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.
