For all discussions relating to the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902.
I have been collecting postcards showing the unveiling ceremonies of Boer War memorials for 30 years but these 2 cards have me beaten. Does anyone recognise them? The second has the date June 23rd 1903 and appears to be an english town, but where?
I have an inkling that the first card is the Duke of Connaught arriving on Guernsey for the unveiling there in 1905 but cannot positively identify the scene. Any thoughts welcome!

I have no record of an unveiling on that date - have you tried The Times for that period?
