The Randfontein War Memorial

This really pretty memorial can be found next to the roadhouse on the corner of Randfontein and Main Reef Roads, Surprisingly the components of the memorial are all in a reasonably good condition, and it is fenced off and the attendants at the garage next door seem to keep a good eye on it.

The plinthed military hardware includes an SAAF Impala, a Universal Carrier, and 4 different artillery pieces. My images were taken on two separate occasions in 2009. Roll of Honour Plaques available on request. GPS co-ordinates: 26 degrees 09′ 01.03″ S , 27 degrees 43′ 27.7″ E.
