First thing that came to me, given that you are possibly looking at a Welsh connection is Royal Welsh Fusiliers (pre WW1)
Do you have any idea who he might be?

Royal Engineers also have Grenade collar badges.
Photo could be earlier than WW1.

Hi Jebber and Tony,

Thank you both,  I wonder if it is Walter W Hayward born 1886 the father of L (leonard  ) Hayward  who i find was born 1912, so the age would rule out him as being in WW1 if that be the case of the Uniform,
