Default thorneycroft's Mounted Infantry

he can be seen to be wearing the TMI shoulder title, from the 2nd Boer War. Examples of the title can be found on the net, from the https://www.angloboerwar.com/forum website

A superb photograph showing an unusual pose and inappropriate use of household furniture; clearly not a gentleman in Khaki.

Without casting aspersions, some of the TMI were Americans....and Aussies

Okay, just wondered, but, those do appear to be Victorian villa type housing in photograph with the bay windows.

Indeed, the tiled footpath and edging are typical of the period.

I would think probably post Vereeniging, but, he certainly looks the part, typical SAMIF, I wonder who he was.

I have a pair of TMI shoulder titles (slouch hat insignia?) similar to those those posted on https://www.angloboerwar.com/forum by "LinneyI".

They're brooched, of white metal with traces of gilding.
I'll dig them out.

Not as similar to Linnerl's as I thought:

Yes, I saw those, I mistakenly thought from memory that my insignia were quite similar another title shown on the thread but they're noticeably different.

Well, they were hand made by various jewellers, so you would certainly expect to encounter a number of differing examples.
