Stone cairn erected in memory of the 25 Officers and men of the 2nd Battalion the Rifle Brigade who died in the battle of Berg-en-dal during the Anglo-Boer War. This is a replica of the original Memorial (circa 1905) which was demolished in 1970 to make way for the nearby Boer Memorial. The design and drawing of the replacement pyramidal monument was based on an old photograph.
