A mounted infantryman with his mount in an image taken sometime around the time of the Anglo-Boer War. Based upon the
location of where the this negative originated and the fact that this soldier wears sphinx collar badges it appears that he was a
member of the Dorsetshire Regiment or possibly one of that regiment's volunteer battalions. This negative was one of several
of a group of associated Dorsetshire images acquired at the same time and from the same source.

Bottom: A sepia toned positive of the glass negative.
