5th Dragoon Guards


This illustration was published in Pomeroy's history, titled 'The Charge of the 5th Dragoon Guards at Elandslagte, October 21, 1899' There is no signature on the picture but it is well painted. The officer out in front, firing his pistol, must be Major St John Gore and the soldiers wielding lances are his dragoon guards.
