Hi Iain

What a fantastic collection, thanks for sharing. Do you know how many Kiwis went to the Boer War ?

I know that anything like this from Aussie is almost impossible to obtain.

Regards

Phil.

Thanks Phil .6507 New Zealanders served in South Africa . I have been told there are only 5 New Zealand Boer War uniforms out there in collections or museums but I cannot verify that .
