Kingston Frost Memorial, Brixton Ridge, Johannesburg

I originally photographed this memorial in Kingston Frost Park in Brixton (Cnr Chiswick and Beverly Streets) in September 2007. The park was named after councillor Kingston Frost in 1939. Google earth co-ordinates are: -26.191069°, 28.003952°.  I returned in December 2011 to check up on the memorial and was pleasantly surprised at how well the park was maintained. Unfortunately I don’t have a lot of luck with the weather and this memorial.

Only 3 faces of the plinth have inscriptions on them. It appears as if all the names on it had a connection to the area, although in the case of Lt Borrowman, Gnr Van Blerk and Cpl Tredoux this does not seem to be the case.
