David, with pleasure:
"Back and White Budget", Jan 27, 1900, p 21.
If you lack this volume, let me know, and I can email you a higher resolution scan.
There are other pictures of the Mafeking siege on p 20-21.

Thank you, Rob.

I keep saying I must index the photos in B&W at some point and must do that.

Hello,

Here is my Sunday afternoon challenge. This from a Nesbitt's Horse attestation. He was a Mafeking man.



James ______ Colley



I want to say Innes but that does not seem correct although looking at the stroke after the 'Ja' in his forename, it may be?
