The reverse of the card has a small slip of blue-lined paper glued to it with the name of "Mrs. Shaw" inscribed on it. One might assume that this Mrs. Shaw was the intended recipient of the photograph.

Eventually renamed the British South Africa Police the unit served during the two wars with the Matabele (1893 and 1896/97), during the Anglo-Boer War, and later in Tanganyika during World War One. It later would become the senior regiment of the Rhodesian armed forces.
