I do apologise if this has been done to death but I haven't found anything on the site. I've just finished reading Ian Knight's excellent 'Then & Now' book on the Zulu War campaigns and just wondered if there were similar 'then & now' photographs of events and places in the Anglo Boer War?

Simond9x,

There is no area of the site dedicated to then and new photographs although there are are many recent pictures of places, battle sites and memorials throughout the site.

Cn I ask what type of then and now images you are thinking of please?

Kings Royal Rifles bivouacked at Potgieters drift, upper Tugela, Jan 1900.
Spion Kop is the skyline.

Exactly like those above ^^^^^^ where modern photos are taken as close as possible to the locations where contemporary photos were taken. Thanks Rob, do you have any more?
