c.1880 perhaps.
As much as anything else that's going on how young he looks.
He has one good conduct chevron in the photo which means he'd served a minimum of 2 years already when the photo was taken. And he's a lance-corporal.

Hi Margie

That cap is post Boer War, so he cannot be someone born in 1857.
