Hi, I'm trying to find out more about my great grandfather. I have an original photograph which was taken in Loughborough where he had lived all his life. The War Museum tell me it dates from the Boer War. I visited the Leicestershire Regiment Museum but was told it is not their uniform. I would be grateful for any help. Many thanks

Is it possible to have a closer look at the badge on his collar please?

Many thanks

Thank you for the reply. I have tried to enlarge the badge but it is quite grainy. I'm very grateful for any suggestions,
Kind regards
Janette

Thank you Janette.

I will investigate and see if I can find a match.

A question to other forum members, given the hat, is this definitely a non-Imperial unit?

Hi David,
His name was Christopher Bailey. He usually used the middle name Ford. He was christened with Ford but it wasn't on his birth certificate. He was born in 1878.
Many thanks
Janette
