Africa War Graves Project
The goal of the South Africa
War Graves Project is to archive photographs of every single South African
& Rhodesian war grave from the 2nd Anglo-Boer War, Bambatha Rebellion,
WW1, Rand Revolt, WW2, Korea, Freedom Struggle, Angola-Border War, Non
World War and Police to present day. These photos will either be in the
format of a picture of a headstone or a name on a memorial. These photos
will eventually be made freely to the family, friends of the deceased
serviceperson, school groups, veterans groups and MOTH shell-holes through
Most of the families and friends of South Africa's (and Rhodesia's) war
dead will never get a chance to visit the graves of these fallen service
people due to the distances and expenses involved with such a journey.
Hopefully by archiving these photos we will be able to close a missing
chapter in many people’s lives by supplying them a photo of the
last resting place of a loved one. By archiving these photos will have
created an online South African and Rhodesian national war cemetery. The
future generations in turn will hopefully be able to learn from this archive,
remember and never forget.
