  2. It surprises me, that as a Nation, we are so quick to forget and neglect Men like this. Is it probable that the future of our Country will forget our current VC winners and neglect their Graves? I do hope not.

    Being an optomistic soul I think the opposite.
    A lot of the guys who won the VC in the Crimea were buried in unmarked or badly marked graves but now various research groups are looking for them.
    Perhaps one day there will be a list of all VC graves.
