Armed Forces / Re: Identification of uniform in (victorian?) group photo

Thank you for everyone's continued discussion on this one.  The reply that I have had from the museum is as follows:
It could be 24th Regiment pre 1881, but we are unable to see the badges well enough to confirm this. Does the belt buckle say XXIV, is the collar badge a Sphinx, the cap badge may be the 24th Regiment Glengarry, does it say 24 on it ?

Thank you Martin for your time and help - it has certainly helped to clear a few things up! 

Could I pick your brain a little bit more please ....?

I have attached the transcription that has now been updated with your corrections and explanations.  I have left a few 'red' parts that I am still struggling with that I would be grateful for your help with.

Thanks again,

Nic

Good afternoon and thank you in advance for any help that may be given.

My ggg grand-uncle was in the Navy and then ultimately the Coast Guard where, according to the newspaper articles I have found, let quite an illustrious life, including lunch with Royalty.

From Ancestry I have downloaded his record and tried to transcribe its contents, however, I have had some difficulty with some elements and would be grateful for the input of other posters.

I have attached the original for reference as well as my transcription.  My main difficulties are shown on my transcription in red.  I have no idea what the first column shows; I am also unsure about some of the rank abbreviations or whether I have transcribed these correctly.

Any help with the items in red would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Nic

Thanks John,

I have emailed The Royal Welsh Museum with a copy of the photo to see what they come back with.

Thanks John and Regorian - possibly a little closer to it being a Welsh Regt?

Thanks Jim - I was hoping that it would match with something from Wales - oh well!
