depicted on magic lantern slides.
part 3 - Transvaal.
Zulu War.
A set of 14 black and white magic lantern slides about the Zulu Wars in South Africa around 1870.

Especially the larger images show how extremely detailed these magic lantern slides are drawn.

The slides measure 8.2 x 8.2 cm.
The Transvaal War.
Produced in the early 1900s this coloured set of twelve magic lantern slides was made for children to learn about Britain's most recent war and features men of the conflict (Roberts, Macdonald etc) as well as a lot of battle scenes.
Each slide measures 20.4cm long by 5.8cm wide and the slides are packed up in a cardboard box.

Transvaal War.
A set of twelve slides which seems to be a summary from the set above, now as square slides measuring 8.2 cm x 8.2 cm.

Boer War.

This large series of no less than 40 slides was produced by W. Butcher & Sons, London, as five sets of eight magic lantern slides each in their Junior Lecturers' Series as parts 701 - 705.  Below you see six six slides, numbered 4, 10, 11, 17, 29, and 37.

Transvaal War (All British T Serie)

All British T Series is a similar production as Butcher's Junior Lecturers' Series, but these sets are composed of more magic lantern slides. The square card board boxes always contain a set of 12 magic lantern slides, 3.25 inch (8.2 cm) square. The texts on the box read 'Superior Coloured Slides, 12 in a Box', 'With Lecture' and the number and name of the set (sometimes written by hand). Slides are protected by a cover glass; the two glasses are held together with a black gummed paper binding strip. A lecture leaflet is enclosed.
Also All British T Series released a set of lantern slides about the Transvaal War. The complete set consists of five boxes of twelve slides, which is no less than 60 magic lantern slides. Below the last set is represented, part 5. The last slide shows a happy end.... the soldier is home again and united with his wife.
