Frederick Charles Parkes of the South African Constabulary (SAC) on horseback, 1901 (c).

Photograph, Boer War, 1901 (c).

The SAC was raised in August 1900 during the Boer War (1899-1902) by Major-General Robert Baden-Powell. The British hoped that once the major Boer towns had been captured by the regulars, this new paramilitary force would assume responsibility from the Army for pacifying and garrisoning the countryside. This did not happen and the British Army continued to operate in the countryside against the skilled Boer guerrillas until their final surrender in 1902.
