We respectively suggest that this print has been incorrectly identified. The portrait is not of Robert Baden-Powell, but is of Sir George White, who during the Boer War was known for his defence of Ladysmith. We have a rather poor condition contempory publication where Baden-Powell and White are pictured which we can scan and send you if you wish.
