Can anyone tell me if this soldier is wearing a WW1 uniform? Any other details would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your reply. It is difficult to see the cap badge, in fact the enlarged image on here is better than the original photograph. I suspect this soldier was in one of the London regiments because my mother's family came from the East End of London. I also suspect he was killed in the war because all my soldier ancestors on that side of the family appear to have been.

Best Wishes,

Mansel
