About the memorial: Brass Plaque depicting the flags of the 2 country's , also soldiers of both country's, with the names in 4 columns, on a wooden backboard. This rare memorial to the First Boer War is a reminder that we often casually describe a memorial as "Boer War"! when we should say "Second Boer War", which was of course the more famous and casualty-riven of the two.
