It looks like that Army record is a different Michael Keogh.
The man in question could have been born in Louth or Dublin, the Census record belived to be him says Louth in 1901 and Dublin in 1911.
Would it have been common for men in their 40s with no earlier service to join up at the start of WWI?

Thank you for medal details and Correction re Innerskilling, although now seems uncertain if that was his regiment. For my Family Tree purpose it's not essential
I found the original digitised image and cropped for medals, if that would help tho'  not very much better

As has been said (assume 15 Star as no clasp & roses as per 14 Star) & BW & V medals.
Also he's wearing the SWB (Silver War Badge) given to men discharged through injury or sickness.
The other soldier is Army Service Corps.

Ok many thanks .. to all,
I am now assuming the Inniskilling fusiliers lead was probably wrong and I should just reference Army Service Corps as his military career and that he was discharged through injury or sickness? Would there be a simple way to work out any dates?
Earlier there was mention of a record which fitted his dob in Chelsea records.. but I can't work out if that was also a no go?
I have also noted that Sarah Place, which is the family link which started all this, was once an army barracks/houses....

He may not have been in the ASC. The other chap definitely was.
He's not showing a cap badge which appears odd to me.
One possible scenario is that he wanted a photo of himself in uniform with the other chap (possibly a son) but by this time (1916 on as they are wearing the economy tunic) he may have already been discharged.
So he's borrowed one & removed the cap badge as it wasn't his Regt.
Also (circumstantial) his top button is undone & both of his pockets. Unlikely for a serving soldier.
As I said just a guess.

Should have asked this earlier, does anyone in the family still have the medals?  If so, there should be a number on the rim of at least one of them.
Richardson, Sherman, Gillam, Hitchcock, Neighbour, Groom, Walton, Strange, Littleford, Brown, Guy, Abbs, Tasker, Bartlett, Farey, Etteridge
