Boer War Memorial, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham Gardner to Parker

As the Boer War Memorial in Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham has such a long list of names. Here is the second part covering the third panel from Gardner to Parker. The South African War soldiers who died from 1899 to 1902 from Birmingham are commemorated on this large memorial in the park.

This is the side view of the memorial taken in about 2007. Our dog Ufton was very interested also!

This postcard of Cannon Hill park was sent in 1944 by someone on holiday in the area. Apart from general aging of the stone and the park has less floral beds and topiary, little had changed.

Panel three has the following soldier's names:

Spring with one of the Tulip Festivals taken place in Cannon Hill Park. Such a riot of colour with the South African War Memorial standing in the middle.
