5th Lancers

Here are the latest figures for the week. Cavalry proved to be very valuable during the Boer war. scouting, finding, chasing the Boers but not so much the charge. Lances proved to be even less valuable and soon most lancer regts would forgo the lance for the remainder of the war. The lance was used to great effect at of the first battles of the war, when the 5Th Lancers charged the retreating Boer commandos at Elandslaagte.
These continue the old glory figures using the dip. These figures would also be real nice for northwest frontier figures which are gaining an interest for me.
This brings the year total to 15 infantry and 5 cavalry.
