Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Hi all a bit off topic but I've recently bought a picture of two bechuanaland policemen. Do any forum members know anything about the uniforms?
Cheers

Ciroferrara,

So you mean the Bechuanaland Border Police.

There is a description of the uniform on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in an article written by Major G. Tylden.

Also see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] But that certainly isn’t Fred Carrington in the article.

Cheers John for those articles. I agree that isn't fred Carrington in the picture! The photo I have which I can't upload, one chap is in shirtsleeves and the other appears to be in a blue/dark tunic with riding breeches and riding boots. Which doesn't match with the description in the Tylden article.
Cheers
