Hello - I suspect that he enlisted in Cheshire and I believe that he was in the Cheshire Regiment during the mid 1920s, (possibly the 1st Battalion).

The Cheshire regiment collar tabs do look very similar to the ones in your pictures.

If your grandfather is deceased, you could always apply to the MOD Veterans Agency for his service records. It depends on how much you want to spend - it will set you back £30, and how long you want to wait - could take a couple of months.

Hello - thank you for all the replies. I am going to take up the suggestion of submitting a request to the MOD Veterans Agency for his service records. Thanks for the advice. Andrew.

In response to Jethro Tull's comments about the trousers in the first photo looking like jodhpurs I'd disagree with that.

If they were jodhpurs they'd have more room around the knees and pads of extra material in the inside knees to protect the inner side of the knee from rubbing against the saddle.
