Maraisburg War Memorial; Maraisburg, Florida

I was not even aware of the Maraisburg War Memorial, but found it on old years eve of 2009. Its situated in an open park bordered by 9th Street and 8th Avenue in Maraisburg, It commemorates men lost during WW1 and WW2.

The images reflect the memorial as I saw it in 2011 and not 2009, it had been recently repainted and patched and was looking very clean and well tended except for the graffiti.

It is possible these names are duplicated on some of the other war memorials on the West Rand. This memorial may be found on Google Earth at 26°10’52.98″S, 27°56’20.16″E.
