This is a puzzle rather than a game but still interesting. It takes the form of a jigsaw of a map of the war printed on triangular pieces and with a coloured advert on the back. Produced by Mellins Food

Another example of "Tugelia", but with wooden gaming pieces. There appear to have been two versions of this set, one selling for 1/- and a superior edition for 3/-.
Rules state: "Pieces consist of 2 sets of 8 Infantry, 5 Cavalry, and 2 Guns".

Cavalry & infantry pieces were knights and pawns, presumably from T & W White's chess set production line.

Two games in one. Players can either enact the defence of Rorke's Drift or tackle one of three scenarios from the Boer War on the reverse of the large map.
