Well a lot of it is anyway. Moustaches were popular then! I found the body language fascinating too. It was the human aspect that first took my interest but after that I wanted to know more about the them. The Rough Riders were New Zealand's Mounted Riflemen in the Boer War in South Africa (1899-1902). I had never heard of a Rough Rider until I saw this picture in the Waipawa Settlers Museum last November. The picture whetted my appetite and I have since discovered that there are quite a few books and much reference material about them including some that have been digitised by Google and made available to Kindle etc as well.
