Welcome to RootsChat!

The soldier is in the Royal Artillery - WW1 era?
His cap still has the wire stiffener in the rim, found to be impractical in the trenches!

Can you post more images of the whole photo, both front and back. This will help to give the most info about the man and also help to date the photo.

We received a "Report to Moderator" message from IMBmir2159 that said:

"Hi tony, thanks for your input, had to down size the photo as it was to big."

I think he meant to reply to your post.

RA but not wartime.  Probably 1920s-30's with the cap and collars.
