Well remembered, Justin, and a fascinating read. The 'Somervell Scouts'! All went into Kitchener's Scouts, and they were photographed by the press in Buenos Aires, prior to departure. Oh, for a couple of hours in the Buenos Aires public library/archives.
. ....Mr. Henry Somervell, the original of the above photograph, has rendered splendid service to his country by raising in the Argentine Republic a corps of English volunteers for service at the front. No less than 150 offered themselves, but 120 only being required for the corps, Mr. Somervell made his choice of the best marksmen, and sailed for South Africa from Buenos Ayres on board the steamship Mab late in January last.
