Military uniform identification

Postby LouiJ » Tue Jan 31, 2012 3:11 am

Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone might be able to identify the uniform in this photo? I'm not even sure when it was taken. The photo belonged to my Maltese great-grandmother and was among other photos of hers taken in Constantinople in the early 1920s. There are no dates or writing on the back of the photo.

I know she was engaged to someone before she ran off with my British great-grandfather (a Royal Navy officer), so I'm wondering if this might be her jilted fiance or perhaps even her father (born in Constantinople to a worker at the British Consulate), who was killed aboard HMS Black Prince in the Battle of Jutland in WW1 serving the Royal Navy. But I know she had a lot of suitors during her time in Constantinople so I guess it could be anyone really, although she doesn't seem to have kept photos of any other men.

Any help would bee very much appreciated!

Thankyou :)
