The vast majority of settlements in this country have a memorial to World War 1 and subsequent conflict but comparatively few memorialise the South African - or Boer -War,maybe because it ended in what was essentially defeat and caused a review of the fitness for fighting of the young male population which was to lead to many social reforms under the Liberal government of 1906-14 A large block, quite recently re-chiselled - records the names of all the Suffolk men who died in this conflict,both those of the Suffolk regiment and those who were with other companies. On the top an infantryman rests on an outcrop, clearly dressed when you look closely in the uniform and with the equipment of a late nineteenth century fighting man. Information about the Suffolks service at this time is available in the Moyes Museum nearby. Well worth a close look if you are passing, though it is largely obscured by the market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Many people think this is a first World War memorial but read the plinth and it's for the 'South African War' - what we now call the Boer War. Bury's First and Second World War memorial is elsewhere, on Angel Hill.

The Boer War memorial sits right in the middle of the town's major square (Cornhill) on a stepped plinth which fortunately protects it from cars. The sculpture carries the artist's name.

A poignant reminder for a war long dismissed into clouds of history by the two wars that followed it.

It's one of those things that you take for granted and I'm only thinking about it as it was suggested as an attraction needing a review!
It has been a part of my life since I can remember, taking a central position on the Butter Market, it is a lovely monument to the fallen from a forgotten war .. Not a reason to visit Bury but you cannot visit without seeing it.
Although on a Wednesday or Saturday it can get "Lost" among the market stalls.

If you have read any of my other reviews, you may have noticed that I often review war memorials and, on occasions such as this, add listings too.

Most war memorials go back as far as World War One, the first major conflict involving such a huge loss of life, and only just out of living memory. The 'Boer War' has faded from memory both by the distance in time and by being overshadowed by the two 'World' wars of the 20th century as well as recent conflicts.

However, 'The South African War 1899 - 1902' as this monument refers to the Boer War was no less major for it's time and as can be seen on this monument the loss of life was quite significant, with 193 men from just one regiment being listed here. It would turn out to be one of the longest and bloodiest wars fought by Britain between 1815 and 1914. The people of Suffolk were doubtless shocked at the high level of casualties. Worse was to come within two decades.

The memorial was unveiled on 11 November 1904 - ironic considering the significance that this day would come to hold fifteen years later. It cost £750 to erect a significant sum, equivalent to over £83,000 today.
