|A somewhat humorous but highly over played stereo image of a British sergeant returning home from campaign in
some far flung corner of the Empire. He seems not to have wasted a moment in coming home being that his uniform
is still covered with dust from the battlefield! Although the image dates from the Boer War it was probably intended
to be generic and represent a soldier returning form any one of a number of Queen Victoria's so-called Little Wars.
The soldier's tunic appears to be of the 1868 patten which would have been over thirty years old when this image
was created - an early example of "army surplus" perhaps.
