Boer war statue – Cardiff

Between the Cardiff Crown Court and the City Hall  stands a statue to remember the South African War. The South African War Memorial, which is also called the Boer War Memorial, was erected in 1908 and unveiled by General Sir John French on 20 November 1909 to honour the victims of the Second Boer War. It has the names of all the Welshmen who fell during the war. My friend Priya and I have been talking about it.
