Robert Wells Identify Uniform
« on: Friday 14 January 22 19:55 GMT (UK) »
This is a photo of my 2nd Great Grand Uncle Robert Wells aged 17, 1888. He was born on the 12 Apr 1871 Scruton, Yorkshire, England. This my Dads side of the tree. The photo was given to me by his Grandson who is now no longer with us.

Is anyone able to identify his uniform.

Thanks
Candis

He is an English Infantry regiment. The Glengarry cap was worn by many regts at that time.
