Mounted Infantry Section

Like most infantry regiments the Royal Fusiliers contributed men to the Mounted Infantry during the Boer War. This is No.2 Section of No.1 Company, 20th Mounted Infantry. In this 1902 photo the young officer sits at the front, with leather gloves but without an ammunition bandolier. A sergeant sits on his right hand with a red sash on his right shoulder, and a corporal on his left hand. There is a bugler standing on the extreme left of the photo.
