Please can you identify this uniform?

Postby raundsgirl » Tue May 13, 2008 3:53 pm

This is a photo of my great-uncle, who spent some time in India in the early 1900s. I was always told he was in the army, but now I'm not so sure. Can anyone help?
It is slightly larger than postcard size, on stiff card with a plain back. The photographer was 'S.R. Tomer, Dalhousie, Punjab, India'
If anyone is wondering about 'Mizpah', it's an acronym(I think) which means 'The Lord watch between thee and me when we are absent one from another' and was popular on brooches etc (I also have a Mizpah brooch) as keepsakes for wives, mothers or sweethearts. In this case it was probaly sent to his mother.
I shall be really grateful for any help.
