EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, titled "Breaker Morant, " offers an intriguing insight into the life of Harry Harbord Morant, better known as Breaker Morant.

Morant's story is one shrouded in controversy and divided opinions. Serving as a lieutenant in the Bushveldt Carbineers, he became entangled in a series of events that would forever mark his name. Accused of executing prisoners without proper trial or evidence, he faced intense scrutiny from both sides.
