If anyone has any jpeg Photographs of Victoria Cross headstones in either Egypt, Libya and Israel would very much be appreciated.

Thanks

Andy

Try googling each of them and the word grave mate,
You should find at least the Australians.

You can try the British War Graves website for some of them - look under the country required and it will show the cemeteries covered. You can get the cemetery & exact grave reference for these men from the CWGC site.
