Boer troops during the South African War (1899–1902)

Boer troops lining up in battle against the British during the South African War (1899–1902). When I look at photo's of the Boer war it always seems the Boer troops/solders seem to be made up of all sorts,  in this photo you can spot a few men that must not be older than 15! none matching guns, uniforms, helmets etc..the exact opposite to all the British empire force. Ultimatly this was telling, better artilerry, organisation, leadership meant only one winner.
