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.

I thought that the swb used the Sphinx of the old 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment as the cap badge, the badge worn by the officer in the picture looks more like one worn by the Royal East Kent Regiment (The Buffs), or am I mistaken?

The SWB sphinx badge was introduced in 1897. Before that a Welsh dragon - very much like the Buffs. From the Brecknock Battalion I think.
