Honouring the fallen

Not a poppy but a single arum lily to honour this poor soul in the Parish Road Cemetery in Constantia on Remembrance Day, 11/11/11. There are quite a few Second Anglo-Boer War graves in this small cemetery - all British soldiers who died here during this war that took place from 1899-1902. Sadly, many of them died waiting to go home as the dates include 1903 and 1906.

  1. Its sad to think that some of them thought they were on their way home to see their loved ones when they died for whatever reason. Also sad that the graves are so overgrown, but that seems to be the case in a lot of places.
