Is this a military uniform?

This is my great grandfather, born in 1873. Is this a military uniform? If not any idea what it is?

Linda,

Judging by the tunic I would guess at Yes.

The lanyard suggests a mounted Regiment or Section, is there any possibility of getting a larger shot of his shoulder title or the cap badge please?

Hi Sorry for delay in responding. We have been back through photos, this appears to be the only one and we cannot get a better picture of shoulder. We have also searched military records on Ancestry - no joy. His name is Reginald Sidney Harding. Date of birth 12 Sept 1873. Lived in Wilton, Wiltshire. Any other suggestions.

Thanks for help, but my great grandfather died in December 1949, so its not this one.

I have just seen some photos of WW1 Red Cross Uniforms (not close up ). Could this be Red Cross?
