Mossel Bay War Memorial

Mossel_Bay_War_Memorial_Cape_St._Blaize_Cover
Circa 1928

The Mossel Bay War Memorial is situated alongside the Point Hotel. The idea for the monument was spearheaded by the Moth Shellhole Veteran Organisation to commemorate all those from Mossel Bay who laid down their lives defending their Country in the 1st and 2nd World War, the Korean War and all the soldiers who guarded our borders. The names of these soldiers have been set over a map of Africa, upon which a line has been drawn in crimson mosaic, marking the places of birth and death of those whom the memorial commemorates.

It was designed by W. J. Delbridge who was an old Mossel Bay boy who kindly volunteered his services. All funds for the monument were raised by the Mossel Bay community through Public Subscription and various functions.

The monument is built on “Frog Rock”, so called because of the shape of the rock. It was a favorite play area for the young boys of the Mossel Bay at the time. The unveiling took place on Sunday, 28 th September 1924 by Major General Sir H. T. Lukin and was dedicated and consecrated by the Bishop of George. In 1954 the names of the casualties of the 1939 to 1945 conflict were added on a marble plaque.
