To assist the National Boer War Memorial Association with
the construction of a National Boer War Memorial in ANZAC Parade, Canberra,
some 10,000 citizens signed a petition to the Parliament of the Commonwealth
seeking its support for the funding essential to complete the task.
The petition was delivered by Captain Michael Fitzgerald
(Retired) dressed as an Australian Boer War soldier (Captain Neville Howse VC)
with due ceremony in June 2013.
All sides politics express support for the
memorial. All they have to do is dig
deep and fund it.
