Hello attached is a picture of my Grandfather Alfred Webb. I have been told it is the undress uniform of the Royal Garrison Artillery. Unfortunately that is all I know. Is anyone able to give any more information. The photo was taken in Dover and I am assuming he was in the 'East Division' . I was sent a link on Flickr which showed a photo by the same photographer, perhaps there are a lot more out there.
Any info, tips or advice in finding out more will be most gratefully received
kind regards
Adrian

Good morning, welcome here,
When you say that is all you know, I take it you do actually know where and when he was born, if so, the best thing to do is look in WO97, WO363 and WO364 at Kew, almost all available to you on line.
I see there are a number of Alfred Webb's who served in the RA and one might well be your man.
Again, welcome here,
Regards Frank Kelley

Morning all

My latest acquisition is a Boer war pair to the 16th SD RGA and a WW1 Mons Star trio, all good. I just wondered if anyone has a good grasp of the WW1 research and explain the Regimental number on his WW1 medals, which is SR-373. It is usually longer and I am struggling to find that number in the usual places.

Thanks.

Doug.
