Help Identify Army Regiment, Era and Uniform Please

Postby Octobergold » Fri Mar 20, 2015 10:49 pm

HI after several minor issues trying to post the photos the powers that be figured it out, i'm eternally grateful.

I would really appreciate any information about the following two photos, Era, uniform style, colour etc, Regiment or service. I know nothing about them at all other than my great grandad is on them and one has an M.P's position as indicated by his sleeve emblem.

Thank you all for your time with this

Yours Kate

Hello there
Lovely photographs! These soldiers look like pre WW1/early 1900s to me – but I'm sure you'll get some more precise answers from our forum members.
If not, you could always forward them to our Q&A department on the magazine (WDYTYAquestions@immediate.co.uk) and I'm sure our military experts will be able to help…

Looks like possibly a guardroom, the Uniform is pre WW1 red jackets blue trousers that look the same colour in black and white, this is home service dress most are wearing service or side caps one in the second pic has his home service helmet on the table. White facings suggest infantry sadly I can't make out the regt badge on the helmet or the side cap held by the soldier to the right. the rifles are long lee enfield or maybe lee metford they are not martini henrys so it is near 1900.
love the soldier pic 1 right front wearing shoes with turnups on his trousers.
