Other comments:
This rare titled silk comprises the individual silk portraits of the four Empire Makers, being

Field Marshal Lord Roberts, V.C. {being go260 on this site},
 
Sir Redvers Buller V.C. {being go116 on this site},
 
Lord Kitchener of Khartoum {being go240 on this site}, and
 
Major-General Baden Powell {being go68 on this site},
all mounted together on the same card mount.

The War In South Africa (probably better known as the Boer War) was fought from October 1899 until May 1902. This then dates the silk above to a period after May 1902.
