These two soldiers of an unidentified regiment may have been part of the British garrison stationed on the South
Atlantic island of St. Helena during the Boer War. During the war St. Helena became the home for many Boer POW's.

St. Helena is probably best know as the final place of exile for Napoleon Bonaparte after his defeat at Waterloo.

The cross-like abrasions that appear on the surface of the photograph are the result of an interaction between the
photograph's emulsion and the glue which the photographer used to attach the photo to the card mount.
