unknown soldier - M & B Dadabouy
« on: Friday 17 July 20 09:47 BST (UK) »
Please can anyone offer any information about this soldier's nationality, date and which army the uniform belongs to? Photo came with others from a possible Continental European source.
Sangorski in Poland/UK/USA
Pidgeon/Palmer/Etwell in London/Oxfordshire/Hants
Bolton/Dufton/Auton in Yorkshire
Costain(e)/Quayle/Cooil in Isle of Man

Not sure if it's British India Army.
He's wearing the crossed muskets of a marksman.
C. 1880's/90's.
Does the photo give a location ?
I've put a link to this on the Armed Forces board.

The collar badges look very much like the globe and laurel wreath of the Royal Marines (of forebears).

The 3 button cuff put me off British Army.
If he's wearing tropical dress uniform it might account for it.

 The name Dadabhoy would indicate Indian/Pakistan location although a famous Indian branch moved

 to  Hong Kong.

India or Hong Kong would still make it a British Army uniform as opposed to Dutch or Portuguese.
Have to agree the collar dogs look RM.

Royal Marines do have 3 buttons on their sleeve and the epaulettes could have the RM badges.
