Further Information
 
The text on this memorial is partly illegible. It is thanks to David McNay, who drew our attention to a book entitled "For remembrance and in honour of those who lost their lives in the South African War 1899-1902" by Sir James Gildea. This book was written around 1906 and is a survey of many Boer War memorials in the country. It contains a complete transcription of the text which we have reprinted above.
