    Wanted: Boer War militaria

    Post by VictorianEra on Fri Jan 20, 2017 10:05 am

    Greetings forum members. I am currently looking for authentic Boer War militaria to add to my collection. I have recently started a Boer War collection (only 2 uniforms in it so far) and am looking to expand and perhaps get a Canadian piece in my collection. Being a collector, I understand that Boer War period items are quite rare, especially Canadian Boer War militaria, but there is still some out there. If you have anything you'd consider selling, send me info at my e-mail: mcgilljamie1@gmail.com

    I am mainly looking for:

    -British/Scottish or especially Canadian scarlet (or other coloured, black, green, blue depends on regiment) patrol frocks, Boer War or before.

    -Boer War Canadian Field Service Caps

    -Other Boer War uniforms/headgear in any condition.

    -Boer War equipment (bandoliers, Sam brownes, water bottles, etc) preferably Canadian but I'd still be open to British

    -Canadian Scottish (any regiment) uniform

    -Anything else Boer War related that you may want to sell

    Even if you're just considering selling an item, and not sure if you'll sell it or not, I would love to see, and maybe we can work out an agreement. My email again: mcgilljamie1@gmail.com

    Thank you all for reading have a nice day. Best regards,

    -Jamie

    Thanks Mike, I am from British Columbia. I appreciate you wishing me luck, I've heard about you prior to joining this forum, I've seen your Canadian Boer War KD Frock to Captain Perry (on another forum. GMIC) or something his name was? Anyway, it's very nice. So far I only have a couple of Boer War Scottish Regiment patrol frocks and a few other items, but I hope to expand my small Boer War collection. Best regards,

    -Jamie

    Hi Jamie.......

    His name was Percy Falls and served with the Strathcona's and South African Constabulary......

    Suggest that you look above and type Stetson in the search engine as there are a few threads that you might like to read......

    Also there is a very good ABW website located here: http://www.angloboerwar.com/
