Could you start a new thread pse??? It will save clogging up this one...
One more charge and then be dumb,
            When the forts of Folly fall,
        May the victors when they come
            Find my body near the wall.

Hi all  :) ,

I've split the topic off and altered the heading of the first post.

Carrolli , do you have a name for this gentleman ?

Looks more like a WW2 uniform, to my eyes?

With the absence of a cap badge & shoulder title it's not possible to say which regiment he belonged to.
The only info I can get from this is that he's wearing the economy tunic introduced in 1916, he's also wearing a formation patch on his upper arm. If it can be identified it will give you possibly a Division he was in.
Agree with ev some personal details might help.
Have to say the style of this photo has all the hallmarks of the 1920's/30's but as far as I'm aware formation patches were discontinued after WW1 & didn't re-appear until WW2.
Happy to be proved wrong.

His wristwatch has a shrapnel guard on it.
Unbreakable watch glasses became available in 1916 (Guard not required).
A wristwatch was generally worn by an officer.
