Unique and original Boer War Proclamation Poster – posted back home by a British Army officer serving in the Orange River Colony in 1900.  Poster declares that the Orange Free State is now under the control of the British forces and Empire – by order of Field Marshal Lord Roberts VC, and ultimately, Queen Victoria.  There is a translation into Afrikaans below.  The original envelope posted to England is still attached to the poster and the officer’s details are written in ink on the top right hand corner.  Is in fragile condition and could do with framing to preserve it for the future – superb piece of British history.  Dimensions of the poster are 30 inches x 21.5 inches.
