French Cartoon on Boer War


This is a French cartoon lampooning the British attempts to subdue the Boers in South Africa. The British are represented by a bloated John Bull whilst the Boers are represented by the more nimble gadfly. The British were often portrayed as Brutish oafs subduing and bullying the Boer nation who were often portrayed as the innocent victim.
