Rocky hill from granite and concrete, on which the bronze sculptures of a wounded or fallen marine lies and another stands..
The monument, designed by Albert Moritz Wolf (1884-1923) and inaugurated on 01.08.1908, commemorates the important role of the marines in the Herero rebellion in 1904, especially in Karibib and Otjimbingwe. Decided to erect the memorial in whk but placed at swk because it was more appropriate at the harbour and port of the colony.
