Very interesting indeed, Mike!
Any chance of putting these on a scanner and posting hi-res versions?

Lovely images, Mike, they show what a very smart regiment it was, whilst it was disbanded upon the 7th of July 1902, the name would be resurrected with the formation of the Transvaal Volunteers.

Perhaps the SALH's most famous member was Lt Winston Churchill. He wore a selection of hats, and his SALH feather plume was sometimes from an ostrich rather than a sakabula. I wonder if the two extra breast pockets on his tunic were designed to take clips of C96 pistol ammo?
