The Zulu memorial on the the other side of the river from the Voortrekker memorial at Blood river. I thought it to be a very sad place. Each shield represents a Zulu regiment and unfortunately not even all the names of these regiments have been preserved. People and culture forgotten.  #Zulu #zulumonument #monument #memorial #bloodriver #battlefield #shields

    @machinistswife it’s a relatively new monument. Construction was started on a bridge over the river to@link the two sites. The Voortrekker Monument people fought it and so@the bridge was never completed. You have to drive several km to get from one site to the other.

    Thanks for the pic. I've never seen this memorial. Yes, so many - forgotten.
