A Cameron Highlander and another photographed in Cape Town circa 1902


Two soldiers, quite probably brothers, photographed on a cabinet card by M J Scallan, Mansion Studio, Adderley St, Cape Town probably at the end of the South African War. The kilted soldier is a Cameron Highlander and the slouch hat of the other suggests he is possibly a volunteer of the Imperial Yeomanry and the cut of the jacket is Scottish. There are some contact marks but only visible at certain angles.
