Boer War Memorial, Latimer

 

Latimer Boer War Memorials

The are two Boer War memorials on the village green at Latimer. The larger memorial relating to people, and the smaller to a general's horse. The inscriptions are on each side of the memorials, but the action of the weather, and the colour of the stone make photographic reproduction difficult. I have therefore included a transcription below:
