Two Nottinghamshire soldiers who fought in the Zulu war are to be officially recognised after nearly 130 years.
Privates Robert Tongue and Caleb Woods lie in unmarked graves at Ruddington Cemetery in Nottinghamshire.
The two fought in the battle at Rorke's Drift, immortalised in the film Zulu.
After a campaign by local historians, the Ruddington Village Museum says the pair will now be honoured.
The mission station at Rorke's Drift was attacked by thousands of Zulu warriors in 1879.
It was successfully defended by just over 130 men and 11 Victoria Crosses were awarded, the most for a single engagement.
Historian David Fox said: "This is a great tragedy, as they also fought in this war.
"Some of the Victoria Cross winners were applauded and given headstones.
"But these two lie here, its just grass, it could be a back garden for all the recording that is here."
The village museum has now confirmed the graves will be marked with headstones donated by Co-op Funeral Services in Clifton.
