Hello SWB!

Oh dear - I'm having trouble bringing this into my reply. It's an eBay item, number:401113454511 and the title is Soldier Group Denbighshire Yeomanry? Welsh Yeomanry at Annual Camp. to be honest, the cap badge doesn't look right to me for the Welsh or Montgomeryshire IY, it looks more rounded at the top, maybe like the Prince of Wales feathers rather than the more angular dragon of the MIY. But I'm on a rapid learning curve and may be wrong.

I'm so sorry I couldn't import the image, but if you do manage to look it up I'd be most grateful.

Thank you so much, and warm regards....

Josephine

Aha, groan - I've just noticed that the eBay seller of the postcard has a shop entitled WW1MilitaryPhotographic, so there's a strong clue in there I suppose. DUH! Having said that, even the best people make mistakes, so my query about the image is still worth asking.

TIA

I agree, standard Cavalry khaki serge Field Service Dress, in this case being worn by members of the Territorial Force, so nothing to do with the Anglo Boer War.
