Boer War uniform by GeneralVyse Boer War uniform by GeneralVyse
Dedicated to: [link]

This is in truth mostly modern RAF tropical uniform. It is however almost identical to the uniforms worn in the boer war. The uniform i own however, is minute, even for me; id say the waist was 28 and the chest 34.

The cap is Royal Artillery; seems to go well with it. I was going to do some Other ranks Boer War images too but ran out of time.... i need to take pics in a real studio and not our landing...

Please read the background story to my story, set in South Africa, titled "Gemoedsrus".

I am seeking feedback to know how far off I may be.

Best place for this pattern is ebay, just search for tropical uniform in ebay. Lots of regiments in Iraq/Afghanistan wear these still, but only rarely.

Ebay mostly.

Here's a starter; [link]

Pith Helmet's are about £16
Sam Brown belts should be about £10-15
Boots will be difficult; get some ';puttees' and brown shoes instead.

Hope that helps!

Nah, are you thinking of the Modern film "the four feathers" with Heath Ledger? They'd quit wearing red by 1881, though some artillerymen wore blue's in ww1!!!
