Good evening,

The spurs do not necessarily mean cavalry. He is an officer and quite senior with the braid on his peak.


I will try and find the IMS shoulder titles.

Definitely looks to be the "Indian Medical Service" shoulder title.

It's a shame you don't have a name, there is a list of officer's here.
