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

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

    @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.
