'Mafeking Relieved', 1900, (1933). Patriotic crowds celebrate outside the London home of British colonel Robert Baden-Powell after his part in the relief of the British-held town in South Africa, besieged by the Boers for 217 days from October 1899 until May 1900. Union jack flags decorate the building: '...the defender's house, gay with banners and blazoned with his magic initials - by which he was always known - was the scene of vociferous cheering by the seething crowds'. From "The Pageant of the Century". [Odhams Press Ltd, 1933]
