Hi Hudsontwin

NC is a common abbreviation for the Natal Carbineers which were divided into squadrons and troops.

Definitely Natal Carbineers but could well be a shot of them in German South West Africa (WWI) - the officer seems to be wearing Boer War medal ribbons?

He looks like William Park Gray whose medals I have

Regards

Rory

Marvelous - do keep these photos coming if you have more - one is always on the look out for snap shots of regiments wherein there is a possibility that men whose medals we hold, might appear.
