Hi Stephen

Yes I paid less than the DNW price.

True, the motor car/coach has provided employment but Henry Fords mass production has taken the craft from craftmen.

Have not added to my collection of late. Think Frank is still holding onto all the BH QSA's!!

In another thread you asked for more images from Horace Nicholls' record of Colonial troops. Below are two of men from Brabant's Horse. They were evidently taken in Queenstown before the regiment moved north on active service. I expect they all looked a lot more scruffy by the time the Siege of Wepener ended!

Brett,
They all look "up for it" and not the sort who would consider surrender to be an option! :woohoo:
