Khaki Posted 16 November , 2013 Share Posted 16 November , 2013 During the last year I 'located' the grave of my G/uncle who served and was wounded in France in 1918, he died in 1940,I finally visited the grave, (which is in a very large veterans cemetery) to take a photograph and pay my respects. As I went to leave I cast my eyes over the other military markers near my uncle. I was astounded to see that one plot apart, same row, was his uncle who died in the same year several months later and was a South African War Veteran. I had no idea that he was even buried in the same cemetery. As these military veterans graves cannot be pre purchased and are allocated without any preference, it was pure coincidence that they were together. khaki Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
