British Military & Raj Cabinet Cards & Other Military Photos

Three larger photos of groups of British and Indian soldiers including a group of Scottish Rifle Volunteers with a silver shooting trophy and Lee-Enfield rifles, the men wearing glengarry bonnets with Black Watch style badges, a photo of a group of officers of different nationalities of the Shanghai Volunteer Corps, circa 1920, and a card mounted with a fine sepia image of Indian lancers, probably Sikhs, with a separate photo of a Brahmin priest, suggesting that England fears the Brahmin- somewhat ironic considering the soldiers are Sikhs! Then there are two WWI British patriotic postcards, two photos of soldiers and staff at Buckingham Palace, and a photo of a man dressed as John Bull. Then there are two larger photos of British sailors in sennet hats on camels in front of the Sphinx and a Pyramid, along with a real photo postcard of Boer General Cronje, and a smaller photo of African soldiers in pillbox hats armed with rifles and spears taken by Miss Eleanor Gordon. Finally are 8 cabinet card sized photos including a British cruiser being played to by a German Askari band at Dar-es-Salaam, a cabinet card of a British Boer War Mounted Rifleman, a very fine Indian photo of a British Gun Crew in India with a lascar and a Jack Russell terrier, two photos of British officers in India drinking and gambling, a stereopticon card of British Remington Scouts in the Boer War eating lunch after having looted and pillaged a Boer farmstead, a square cabinet card type image of a parade of mounted soldiers, possibly in India, a large matted photo of a British Mounted Rifleman with a small pistol in hand, wearing a wide-awake hat, with a broken corner of the matte. The Shanghai Volunteer officers photo is folded in three and breaking along the folds.
