Winged Angel of Peace Review

The statue of the Winged Angel of Peace commemorates the dead of the Second South African War (1899–1902), also called the Boer War. The site was chosen as one that was "in the midst of our daily work," so it would be seen often and would serve as an inspiration for peace. Irreverent students can't help pointing out that it looks as though the angel is supporting a drunk (not dying) soldier and pointing accusingly at one of the local pubs.
