Hi , sorry to bother you guys , looking for help on this one . A family photo from the boer war . We have a surname of Hands and in the pic he wears slouch hat with ss badge (sharpshooters?) ,chain mail epaulettes too. The problem lies with the pic collar badge . Its either 10th hussars or 12th lancers . Both have very similar badges and both have a surname of Hands also.
So there is my dilemma . Is it possible to find a list of sharpshooters? Everything else has gone missing over the years bar this photo.
Having checked all badges related to that surname my great great grandfather is definately one of the two.
If i can suss out my camera i'll post a pic of him too.
Many thanks Warren.
