Boer War uniform 3D Model
Prior to 1885, most of the British Army had fought in red jackets, with khaki service dress not being introduced for the majority of regiments until 1902 (though some had worn it early. The new uniform was a recognition of a need to produce uniforms which were suitably to the places being fought in, this temperate climate uniform, being of a sandy colour was appropriate to the desert locations of South Africa, as was the lighter fabric it was produced from (a change from the heavy felted red jackets). This uniform is that worn by Serjeant Charles Glasson George of Mylor who served with the DCLI during the Boer War in South Africa from 1899-1902. The red sash would have been worn by Serjeant George, with non-service forms of his uniform.
