King Edward VII School War Memorial, Houghton, Johannesburg

I was fortunate enough to get permission to photograph this memorial inside the grounds of King Edward School (KES) in St Patrick Road, Houghton, in November 2012. A Remembrance Day Service is held at the memorial every year in November, and while I was invited, sadly I was not able to attend.

It commemorates the Masters and Boys of the school who lost their lives in both World Wars.
