Musings of a curious individual

Memorials & Monuments in South Africa

Memorials and Monuments in South Africa.

It was never my original intention to create this page, but as I photographed for the South Africa War Graves Project I suddenly discovered that I was taking lots of photographs in cemeteries and of memorials during my travels. I have more or less completed my photography for the South African War Graves Project, and it has been a very satisfying project, but it can never end, as more memorials and graves still have to be found. My quest to photograph cemeteries became a sideline, and very interesting one too. I did discover that there is very little information about most of these memorials and cemeteries, many aren’t even on the map, but they are a part of our history whether we like it or not and as such worthwhile recording.

As usual this is an ongoing project these pages open in the allatsea blog, because this is really a duplicate of that page at allatsea.  As usual some pics open in a new window. Special thanks must go to all my contributors, especially Terry Cawood, Ronnie Lovemore, Alta Griffiths, Peter Moss, Ken and Eleanor Garvie, Mark Green, Kevin Brazier, Tony Wood, Mrs Bee, and James Houston-McMillan.
