South African War Memorials

While a number of Taranaki troopers served in the Anglo-Boer War of 1899 -1902 memorials to the casualties were restricted to the major centres. Two memorials to individuals were erected (Hempton and Wiggins) both who died of disease. A certain mystery surrounds Wiggins memorial as it appears to have disappeared without trace.
