    Boer War Theatre Painted Cavalry Swords

    Just come across this interesting image of Troopers painting their 1885/90pís in the field, Iíve seen plenty of 1908pís (original green or not!) and the occasional leather covered scabbard on an 1899p, but does anyone have one of these Boer War examples?

    I have an 1899p with leather scabbard with wooden core. The steel mouth has some sort of amber coloured material that protects the blade edge.
