The Boer War was a serious jolt for the British Army. At the outbreak of the war British tactics were appropriate for the use of single shot firearms, fired in volleys controlled by company and battalion officers; the troops fighting in close order. In the Zulu and Sudan Wars overwhelming enemy numbers armed principally with stabbing weapons were easily kept at a distance by such tactics; but, as at Isandlwana, would overrun a loosely formed force.

Hi there, will load the extra pics just now, the scabbard is basically just a copper made one, not original at all, on the spine is a '/90, a '93 on the side of the blade, not sure of maker, is a few symbols on the blade though.JB.
