“A GENTLEMAN IN KHAKI”
Khaki, originally used in India only, but now universal in foreign campaigns, is a canvas-like fabric, cool in summer and warm in winter. It is precisely the colour of
the dusty, yellow-brown veldt, and its name is derived from the Persian word for dust.  From
With the Flag to Pretoria
