South African War Memorial

South African War Memorial (1924)

Tall octagonal tapered column with inscription commemorating those in the Northumbrian Regiments that died in the South African War, 1899-1902.

When the Metro was built the Statue, which adorns the top of the Monument, was ‘lightened’, it’s wings replace to prevent any problems with the Metro down below.

Interesting inscriptions on front and rear of the Monument
