I am unsure of which family member this is and the identification of the uniform could help date it....

Not easy to make out any detail Kathy,possibly a grenade badge on collar and epulet's which
could mean Fusilier regiment very late Victorian/early Edwardian era,any clue's to a possible name
for this person?I've seen identical jacket's worn by the East Surrey Regiment
but their collar badges were worn vertically which doesn't seem to be the case
here.Someone with a greater Knowledge will be along soon hopefully.

Possibly - 1st Bn. Lancashire Fusiliers ??

Not sure if this is Thomas Ardill Haslam (born 1892), already serving in 1911 census in barracks.....died after the landing at Gallipolli in 1916.

I had been told the picture was of his father Samuel (1864-1919).....it was found in possessions of Thomas' brother, (I have a feeling it was his brother not his father)

Kathy,Lancashire Fusilier's fit's in uniform wise,Thomas was 1st Battalion which was one of the two
regular battalion's of the regiment,interesting on Helles memorial there are two other Haslam's from
Bury and Blackburn area.Thomas would have been around 23 when he was killed so again it's fitting
the picture,there are record's on Ancestry which could be him I'm not a paidmember so can't help I'm
afraid.

Thank you ...... I have lots of info on him, plus his records from National Archives, and the war diaries.  I just really wanted to know if this was a photograph of him......as we don't have one.

This is the last pattern red coat, the model 1913. The previous one, the 1902, had different piped shoulder straps. The 1913 is still used by bandsmen.
