I recently found this antique book plate dating from 1900 depicting a British Boer War Sentry on duty, and due to my family connection with the Boer War and the fact that I liked this image I decided to buy it.
Compared to most historical wars, there isn’t a lot of interest in Boer War memorabilia a search on Ebay will turn up 1000’s of images and collectibles.
I use Ebay a lot whilst researching and I save all my search terms and get notified daily if something of interest is listed. Some things that appear on Ebay should be in a public archive or museum and many things I see listed are clearly the sellers grandfather’s war medals or their family photographs (I always cringe).
but over the years I have discovered items and images connected to my own family history. It’s a great place to look.
Please feel free to use this image.
