I was just wondering if immediate family members were give free transportation to South Africa to visit the Battlefields where their loved ones departed life.
My first thought is the cost of such a venture, knowing the way the Government works. But was there any sort of funding that would allow this.

Hi SAS1.
I cant say I've ever come across anything dealing with your post and if it did happen I'm sure many would have taken up the offer , but
as I've never come across anyone mentioning it , I doubt it happened . Also the cost of the war was horrendous and the Govt of the day was ripped off in every stage when dealing with the Colonials in regards to Transport & Livestock . So even if they wanted to do as you mention there was no way they could afford to do so . Hope this helps .
cheers 90th. Idea
