In Memoriam cards for villagers killed in World War 1

The Chapter on Netherthong and its involvement in the Boer War and World War 1 is very detailed as it  serves as an everlasting record of the role that the young men ,who went off to fight for their country, played in keeping it safe.

I have been able to find five In Memoriam / In Loving Memory  cards and have decided to put them in a separate chapter. I have also included the card issued on Saturday , July 26th. 1919 for the Peace Rejoicing Celebration.
