This exercise has been getting increasingly difficult to manage, so I have alphabetised the list; I have also taken the opportunity to delete all reference to card "numbers" as it has become clear that any particular image can have any number printed or written on its mounting card, or no number at all. Having now deleted a number of accidental duplicates, and duplicates where subtly different titles appear on different editions of the cards, the running total is now 230 unique images. Here is the revised list:

Hello Mike,

I undertook a similar exercise 30+ years ago for the Anglo-Boer War Philatelic Society and like you realised that the numbers and card colours had no relevance in cataloguing the images and ended up with an alphabetical list. Have you noticed that there are also many cards with slightly different photos but the same captions? My list was on a very old database which predated microsoft and the WWW and I am not sure if I can still open it but will have a look. I believe I had reached over 350 images when I gave up but I still have 6 albums of cards and I will go through your list and see if I can add anything. Have you come across the set (rare) of images of Boer forces, Zarps and so on? Also have you looked at Keystone, BP, and other card publishers?

Regards
Paul

Hi, Paul,

Thanks very much indeed for getting in touch.

Different photos with the same caption, no, I can't say I have come across that yet, but I have come across the same (or nearly so) photo with very different captions!

If you can add a further 100+ listings I shall be absolutely thrilled. Even better if you can get your original database into txt format and upload it here.

The only Boer images I have found by Underwood and Underwood are those listed above - mostly captured prisoners.

I have deliberately avoided all the other publishers of stereographs: having accidentally fallen into the trap of starting a U&U collection (with no knowledge of just how large a complete collection would be), I decided that it would be madness to attempt the same with the others. There was quite a good selection of Keystone stereos on eBay a week or two ago, though, and I was sorely tempted.

My main interest in the Boer War is in the services of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, and, so far, I have come to the conclusion that the regiment was camera-shy to a degree! I have not found a single stereo of any DCLI subject in SA 1899-1902. I do have a nice stereo portrait, taken in SA just after the war, of a DCLI officer who died shortly thereafter, but that is it.
