Photo date and uniform info please. McEvoy family.
« on: Wednesday 29 July 20 23:17 BST (UK) »
This man is possibly my grandads brother but i dont know his name.
Could anyone hazard a guess when this picture could have been taken from his uniform and also guess his age.

PS sorry for such a poor quality picture the original file size was huge and it the best i could do to reduce it down.

You would probably be best posting this on the Armed Services board for uniform recognition. You can ask a moderator to move your post for you.

It might also be useful if you could post your grandfather's full name.
Good luck with your research.

Good evening,

This is most likely ww1. However, that uniform was extant 1908 to 1939. (Some troops were still wearing it early ww2).

 I don't recognise the collar badge but will have a search around. Is there more to see on the original or is that the picture in it's entirety.

Thank you for the reply, thats the whole picture although the original is slightly clearer.

It might also be useful if you could post your grandfather's full name.

His name was John Patrick McEvoy, cant seem to add it to the original post.
