A sandstone memorial comprising a wall and obelisk marking the Anglo-Boer War facing towards the street at the eastern end of the Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk. The bas-relief marble plaque depicts a Boer soldier (perhaps a Cape Rebel) mounted on a horse in desert surrounds, locating it locally. The other plaque has instructions to be opened on the 16 December (once The Day of the Vow) in 1999, the centennial year of the declaration of the war, promising a message to the next generation..
