About Grave of a British Soldier

The grave of Charles James Darter, a sharpshooter born in Cape Town and part of the British Army. Darter was killed in an ambush in 1902. His grave is located just North of Kamieskroon on the N7, and is popularly referred to as the smallest piece of Britain in the world.

The site is identified by a pepper tree growing just next to the grave, and can be very easy to miss when driving past on the N7. You will also need to climb over a small fence to get up close, but people have made it relatively easy by placing big rocks to step on.
