Age shall not weary them…

Deep in the Matopos is a MOTH shrine dedicated to the people of this nation who fought in the Great Wars…Lest we Forget

MOTH

It is very quiet here in the middle of the Matopos, and the shrine is shady and serene…my camera didn’t want to pick up the details under the trees…

The characteristic Allied helmets are all around the shrine, on the gate, on this plaque…

MOTH

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.Matopos

  1. Thank you. I never had the privileged to visit but know about it so this is great. So many ceremonies taking place over here and so nice to see so many Rhodesians and South Africans stepping forward to honour those gone and those remaining behind mourning or injured etc I have sesn some touching memorials to all the animals that are often forgotten.
