Dressed in the uniform of the Imperial
Yeomanry Corporal Bert is pictured with
his wife Winnie who also appears to be
ready to head out on campaign against the
Boers. She wears the same type of slouch
hat as he does, has in what all probability
his bandoleer draped across her shoulder
and holds a small caliber pistol. Her heavy
skirt appears to be made of the same wool
fabric as Bert's uniform. She looks more
intimidating than he does!

Bert's uniform insignia are all the
"Prince of Wales Plume" type that were
used by many Yeomanry units. Because
this photograph was taken in
Hertfordshire it is possible that Bert was a
member of the Hertfordshire Imperial
Yeomanry.

The following section showcases
seven carte de visites and cabinet
photographs of Edgar J. Newman of
the Royal Artillery and his family.

No. 23119 Edgar James Newman, R.A.
was born around 1854 at Falmouth,
Cornwall being the son of John
Newman and Adelaide Macklin.

Sometime prior to 1861 the family
removed to Toronto, Canada where
there may have been other family
members already residing. In 1870
Edgar James Newman along with his
parents and three siblings where living
in the town of Greece which is located
in Monroe County, New York. On 15
September, 1874 Edgar James
Newman married Anne Agnes Mayne
in Toronto, Canada. Edgar Newman’s
profession is listed as a contractor on
the marriage record.

Seaman Gunner Henry Stephen Walker of the
Royal Navy and his younger brother Frederick
Thomas Walker of the 7th Hussars posed together
posed for this cabinet photograph at their
hometown of St. Leonard’s on Sea, Hastings
sometime around 1900.

The brothers were two of at least nine children
born to William Edmund Walker and Charlotte
Emily Blaker with Henry being born around 1878
and Frederick about 1880.

At the time this photograph was taken Henry had
been in the Royal Navy long enough to have
become a qualified Seaman Gunner the badge for
which he wears on his right sleeve. Unfortunately
his cap is not to be seen in the photograph and it
inclusion may have shed light on which ship he
may have been serving at the time. As a result his
career is something of a mystery at this time.

19 year-old Frederick Thomas Walker attested
with the Corps of Hussars of the Line at his
hometown on 16 March, 1899 and was immediately
assigned to the 7th Hussars as Private No. 4628.
