Queen Victoria Boer War Tin

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomIn December 1899 these tins were sent to every serving soldier in South Africa as a New Years present from Queen Victoria. They contained chocolate originally and, although rare, you can still find them intact and complete. This one came to me with the pay book and medals of a soldier who served in the Boer War.
