Additional Notes 'This structure, the oldest in the square, is typical of war memorials of the early twentieth century. Those memorials were somtimes celebratory, sometimes mournful, and sometimes both. This Boer War Memorial seems celebratory, especially at first site. A closer inspection reveals the bronze plaques on the sides of the pedestal, listing the names of Queenslanders who died on the South African battlefields of the Boer War. But the are called 'heroes who fell' - a mixture of celebration and mourning in the words.'http://www.qhta.com.au/article_anzac_square_hoepper_final.pdf
