|Top: The glass plate negative of an unidentified infantryman for the Anglo-Boer War. In this case the negative is
actually a copy negative made by re-photographing a previously printed photograph. A crease running through the
middle of the print can be seen in the image. This image also offers an excellent view if the khaki cloth helmet covers
that were employed by British troops during the war. Also to be noted are the spurs attached to his boots. This indicates
mounted duty though he is equipped with what looks to be standard waist belt ammunition pouches. A mounted
infantryman would normally have been issued with an across the shoulder bandoleer to hold his ammunition. Also note
the boot scraper next to the steps behind him.
Bottom: A sepia toned positive of the glass negative.
