It's the King's Liverpool Regiment.

West Yorks had all its legs on the ground and was wider.

Yes The White Horse of Hanover.
My Dad’s Regiment.
Viktoria.
Well— at first glance yes but I have just got out a folder my grandson made, the badge from Dad’s blazer is there ,among other keepsakes.
Now I am not so certain, the bottom part where it says “ KINGS” is sort of scalloped , the photo you sent has only one dip in the middle. there is a bar above that alternate black and white .
The tail is carried fairly high.
The front legs are a bit higher than the back but not a full prance.
You can see all four legs .
Google it, I don’t know how to send photographs

The soldier is from one the King's Liverpool's territorial battalions.  He is in either the  7th or 9th Battalions.

Yes, Dad was in the 2/7 th ,number 269558.
Had been in The Derby Scheme I believe ,he had another number , 8278.
On Army Form B 104-83, which notified his family he was missing ,but not to presume he was killed it says - Territorial Force Record Office Preston .
Dated 7/5/17.
Hope this helps.
Viktoria.
