I've started a new project recently to find and photograph the gravesites of Victorian VC winners. Sounds a bit morbid when I write it like that. But then it gets me out...
If members find this interesting I'll post the photos on here as I take them. I'm focussing on my part of the world (southwest England) in the first instance, plus a few from elsewhere I had previously visited. If other members have similar photos that they want to add to this string, I'd be interested to see them.
First three offerings are all from Cheltenham Cemetary, which is the last resting place of no less than 6 VC, three of them from the Victorian era. Captions to the photos show their regiment and rank at time of winning the VC (not at time death - many made it quite a lot further in the promotion stakes, as their headstones note!) and the location of the action in which they won the award.
I should add that all details are from Kevin Brazier's excellent "The Complete Victoria Cross", which I warmly recommend.
