Great moustache!

I'm not a great expert, but he looks like an officer in the Artillery, World War I.
Or maybe just after WWI, as he might have the three campaign medals on his chest already. See http://gallery.nen.gov.uk/image656973.html

What do the words at the bottom right say? Details of the photographer I presume? I wondered if one word is "Calais". Sometimes searching for the photographer can reveal the date he operated, and narrow down the field of search.

I have used that forum several times and there will be someone who can identify it for you within minutes - and they also help with background info etc. A very knowledgable group!

Wasn't sure if we were allowed to recommend other forums, but here is one where you would certainly find experts capable of telling you things you never suspected about an individual from World War I.

Your image would appear to show a lieutenant who was serving in a fusilier regiment at the time that the photograph was taken.
