My only major collection of Pounds, Shilings and Pence now lives in a Standard Lamp. When I emigrated from the Mother Country I brought over a very large collection of half pennies. Bought a Standard Lamp over here but it was unstable. Took it apart filled the base with half pennies. Now it is very stable.

There was the Free State-Basotho Wars 1858-1868. The Boers v the people of  Basutoland. The British eventually made Basutoland a "Protectorate". Protectorates need armies to "protect" them. This is possibly why soldiers were there. Or they were there because the Cape Colony was British and the British sent troops to wherever they wanted to.
