Pictured with his wife and their pet spaniel, this saddler sergeant appears to have been a member (based on his
"168" collar badge)
of the 168th Company, 38th Battalion, Imperial Yeomanry. The unit was raised in 1901 for
service in the Anglo-Boer War
though very little information has been found relating to either the company's or
battalion's activities during the conflict
