Unknown Boer War Soldiers

Recently I came across these two interesting photographs that date from 1899 – 1902, they are Cabinet Photographs of Boer War Soldiers. The first image was photographed by Seville Leicester & Boscombe and the second image is from an unknown studio.

There are 1000’s and 1000’s of images in circulation where the names belonging to a person’s portrait are lost, in most cases the history of these people will never be known.

I religiously write on the back of every photograph as I am sure everyone with an interest in genealogy does, but there are many people out there who’s cherished memories will be lost due to not recording who the photograph is off or what the subject matter is about, I even write my own name, if it’s an image of myself.

If anyone stumbles upon these images and can identify these soldiers or their regiments then please get in touch.

Please feel free to use these images.
