Long Description:
This inconspicuous memorial plaque is found on the second floor of the Manitoba Provincial Capitol building, near the Legislative Library.

The text of the plaque reads as follows:

"To honour those who enlisted for service in the South African War
Oct 11 1899 – May 31, 1902

May those that come after see that these men are not forgotten

Erected by the Province of Manitoba
May 31, 1952"

It is impossible to get a GPS reading inside the massive Capitol building, so the coordinates are for the center the dome.

There are several other plaques lined up along this interior hallway.
