Good afternoon,

The economy uniform jacket was introduced late 1915 so after that date. The buttons will be the general service pattern, regt'l buttons did not exist then having been done away with around 1870. They were replaced by collar badges in 1874, but not worn during ww1.

Many service wives had photos taken in their husbands, brothers, fiances uniforms hence the bad fit.

The pleat was reintroduced to the breast pocket before the end of the war. Although that didn't mean every soldier was immediatly given a new jacket.

Added, the bandolier is the 1903 pattern. Introduced when the previous model was declared unfit. Used right through ww1 by mounted units. No way to tell from photo but the cavalry issue had a further 4 pouches on the rear giving them a 90 round capacity.
