Caption for York, The War Monument 1909: This view shows the rear of the Assize Court. The whole area has changed almost beyond recognition. The castle walls to the right of the view are now demolished. The cannon is no longer there, and the monument, although still in almost the same place, now stands in the middle of a roundabout on a busy road.

Memories of York, the War Monument 1909

This is the Paardeburg Memorial (the Green Howards). Due to the amalgamation of the East and West Yorkshire Regt. our name is now what the regiment has always called itself. The Green Howards Regt Association carry out the service of remembrance on the Saturday before the national day in the area of the Paardeburg Memorial and lay their wreath there.
