Will the Real Sgt. Pepper Please Stand Up?


With this being the 50th anniversary of the release of the famous album by that famous group.

From the May 13, 2017, Yahoo! News "Who's the Real Sgt. Pepper?  New Beatles Book Unveils Identity of Soldier Seen on Album Cover."

You know, that guy on the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover with that grand handlebar mustache.

He is James Melvin Babington of the 16th Queen's Lancers in the Second Boar War.  They were in the First Calvary Brigade in South Africa.
