Boer War Card

This is an interesting fold-out card to 'celebrate' Kitchener's subjugation of the Boers and their generals. The card is obviously trying to play on the pun of Kitchener's name in this case. O.P. stands for Oom Paul which was the nickname given to Kruger. Joubert and Cronje were Boer generals who were known as the 'bitter enders' for continuing the fight for as long as they did.
