'Many people tend to regard battlefields, and especially those of the Anglo-Boer War, as symbols of bitterness and strife. ... Bitterness is not an issue between honourable foes, and in pitched battles it was conspicuous by its absence. We would do well to remember the examples set by those who fell in their thousands performing the duty their countries demanded, and regard our battlefields and monuments as sanctuaries and memorials to brave men, no matter their colour, class or creed.'
