Any Idea What Regiment this is
« on: Wednesday 19 December 18 17:17 GMT (UK) »
Trying to work out who this photograph is of. He looks very young to be a Corporal. Can anyone tell me what regiment he is in?

Thanks for your reply. If he is an army cadet have you any idea of the dates uniform like this would have been worn?

He's wearing the 1908 pattern tunic so that's the start date.

The cloth shoulder title would give his unit if you enlarged it.

He appears to be a school cadet or member of the Junior Division OTC but the cap badge is not clear. Can you enlarge it?

The arm badge is a bugle so he is either a bugler or linked to a Light infantry unit.
