Over on Plastic Soldier Review website (link below) you will find these simple but useful models and gun crew from Strelets in Set 188, "Pom-Pom Gun with Boer Crew" where you get 20 crew (in 5 poses) and 4 guns per pack.

See http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/review.aspx?id=2535 for photos

A very useful addition for Boer War gamers / modellers (very early in our period I know) with crew in civvies mainly having possibilities for other periods / situations (from civil wars in Russia or Spain or post WW1 revolutions to VBCW gaming)? And the gun could be adapted to other uses. Possibly given different mounting for naval landing / gunboat support in colonial games?

If you just take the shield off of it it looks like the version used by the British as depicted by Strelets in set 189
