South African War

South African War Memorial on Marine Parade.

Marble and Bluestone.


This memorial was unveiled by Lord Plunkett K.C.V.O. Governor of the Colony, 10 February 1906.

Committee: S Carnell. Mayor, M N Bower. Town Clerk, C H Edwards. A E Eagleton. Hon Secretary Clerk

These tablets were erected by the people of Hawke's Bay to commemorate the part taken by troopers from this District in the South African War 1899-1902, and as a tribute to patriotism shown by them in offering their services in the empire's cause.

This monument was shattered by earthquake in February 1931 and was re-erected by citizens of Napier in February 1947.
