This particular memorial in is a magnificent work of art, the depiction of the ranker in Home Service Full Dress is very pleasing.
Shirlaw was subsequently buried at Leliehoek. whilst Spareham was buried at North Road Kroonstad, his grave marked with it's original cross.

It was, but, then the more ornate and detailed the design, the longer it would take to manufacture, far better later than not at all.
