Help Identifying Uniform
« on: Wednesday 21 February 18 17:52 GMT (UK) »
I am not 100% sure on who this man is, but perhaps his uniform might help to narrow down the candidates. Likewise I am unsure of the date, but guessing 1940s?

Many thanks for any help or information  :)

Looks like Royal Engineers or the REME as they were in the 1940's.
I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong.

Artificer (known affectionately as Tiffy) but in the Royal Artillery - see collar dogs.  Can't remember when the trade was no longer in the RA, now of course fulfilled by REME.  1940s.
