Rimington's Tigers. Scouts at rest!




Description

An image from Underwood and Underwood entitled "Remington Scouts enjoying lunch in a Boer home wrecked by Kaffirs, Yaasfontein, S.A." and gives a good impression of this renouned and somewhat irregular unit of Irregulars. It would be interesting to speculate precisely who it really was who ransacked the house in which they are taking their lunch. The scouts, known as 'Tigers' because of their distinctive wild cat fur around their hats, had a reputation for laying waste to Boer villages through which they passed.
