Described as:

Boer War Interest South African Horn Corkscrew, carved to the horn handle ‘7965 G Co R.C.R 1899’ to the edge is carved ‘597 2nd C.M.R 1900’. Steel corkscrew with some surface rusting, light cracking to the horn but generally good example. This corkscrew was fashioned by Canadian trooper, John A McLeod who volunteered to fight in the Boer War, first serving with the Royal Canadian Regiment in 1899 until invalided home in March 1900. He then re-enlisted and was sent back to South Africa in January 1902 with the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles.
