An unidentified British soldier photographed sometime during or possibly just after the Anglo-Boer War. He wears no
identifying badges of any sort so there is no way to determine to what unit he belonged to. His uniform sports
Victorian General Service Buttons which would in all likelihood make him a member of the British army as opposed to
one of the local Natal units.

He is wearing what appears to be a heavy wool uniform as opposed to the more commonly seen khaki which may
indicate that the photograph was taken during the winter months. His Foreign Service Helmet has a khaki cover and
the helmet's puggaree is clearly visible beneath it.
