Identified as Frank Smith by a period inscription on the reverse of this photograph it is uncertain if he was indeed a
military cyclist or simply posing with the overt symbol of a favorite pastime. His rank it that of a private but his
regiment is a complete mystery. The inscription states
"Believed killed in the Boer War". Sadly this too will
probably remain unverified due to the lack of identifiable regimental insignia on his uniform.
