Am wondering if anyone can help me identify this uniform (or person!) who apparently died in the Boer War.
We found this photo in my great grandmother's possessions with her handwriting on the back and are researching who this person may be.

Her inscription says "Baylis died in South Africa 20 June 1900. (pic) taken in UK Monmouthshire".

She was Welsh, from Cardiff, and migrated to Australia. So she either brought this with her, or someone sent it to her. He appears to be in his 20s, about the same age as my greatgrandmother would have been at the time.

Really appreciate your help in advance.

Hi Meurig, thanks for the quick reply. Out of the Baylis name search this looks like the most likely candidate. Much appreciated, thank you. Mark

My pleasure Mark.

He is wearing white trousers so possibly photographed overseas - Gibraltar, India or Egypt.

You may want to add his picture to britisharmyancestors.co.uk/
