Along with several other photos I collected from the family of Lt David Sparks, NC, whose QSA I have was this photo which includes his son.

Although not "directly" Boer War I include it in the hope that a member here may have a group of medals to one of the chaps in the team.

Quite by coincidence I found a relative on my mother's side (Rapson) in the frame.



Regards

Rory

Dewar's Shield dated back to at least 1905, but it seems to have been for Rugby Union. Looks like the same shield to me. paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/OW19060124.2.101.4.33
