You could contact the N.I. police federation & see if they have a better picture.

I can a likeness as well.
Pity we can't get a close up of his ribbons as there could be his SA
ribbons there.

If this is C.G. Wickham as suggested it may be the QSA & KSA
were painted over as there wasn't enough space to include the others.
He would have worn them on his uniform so may be not having them
on the painting wasn't an issue.

The image is too small to show his rank clearly but possibly a Major (I note the write up has him a Capt.).
Another observation is the date, some of these medals weren't issued until 1919-21
so either the date is a bit off or they were painted on later.
It's going to be impossible to say who it is without knowing the name of the original seller.

World War One / Re: RFA Brigades . Help Please.

Yes A would refer to the Battery.
114 was a Howitzer Bde.
This is what the LLt says:
CXIV
This brigade was originally comprised of A, B, C and D Batteries RFA and the Brigade Ammunition Column. It was placed under command of the 26th Division. The batteries were all armed with four 18-pounder field guns. The brigade then remained with the division throughout the war: you can see details of its battles and movements on the page describing the division.
On 20 July 1916 A Battery left, becoming the A Battery of 117 Brigade. D Battery was renamed as A Battery.
On 12 June 1917 D (Howitzer) Battery joined from 100 Brigade (of 22nd Division).
D (Howitzer) Brigade left to join 77 Brigade on 19 October 1917.
