Royal West African Frontier Force



DescriptionA head-and-shoulders shot of a uniformed African soldier of the Royal West African Frontier Force. This image looks like it belongs to the series ˜Our Allies the Colonies', launched in September 1942, when Advertiser's Weekly noted that each image gave a head-and-shoulders view of a representative of the Colonial fighting services, indicating to the public the way in which the colonies are assisting the war effort and cementing the bonds of friendship. See INF 13/213 (Piece Number 10) for an example from the series.
