Another couple of pics as above. A close look at the lads of the Ladysmith TG appear to show some Martinis in hand. Can't tell if MH, MM or ME.
Nesbitts lads are holding both Magazine Lee Enfield rifles and (probably) Lee Metford carbines.

Superb and very good photographs indeed, I particularly like the second, I think I made my thoughts on Nesbitt's Horse very clear to you recently, good old Randolph, quite a character, certainly an ardent imperialist and very much the typical empire builder, from memory, he had originally cut his teeth with the Cape Mounted Rifles straight after leaving school, that time was well spent.
Thanks for your reply. The weakness of the Creswicke series of pics is that (mostly) only the officers are named. Nevertheless, most of the pics are not readily available elsewhere. So, a worthwhile exercise.
