Hi All,

Just thought I would post this latest addition to my Boer War collection. The condition of the tin is not the best but the contents is rather interesting.

Hi Malcolm......

Great tin and contents.......

There was also a card with it the same as WW1 Tins.......

I was lucky enough to pick up a tin in mint condition but it did not have the contents...... The person given the tin had written a letter, put some coins and some Mauser bullets in his empty tin and mailed it mother at home (but was killed a couple of weeks later) and therefor did not damage it......

Now all you have to do is look for the Devonshire Regiment and Royal Scots Grey's tins.......
