Hi Everyone

I recently bought this picture post card thinking it was a soldier from the manchester regiment. Now im not so sure?

Could you have a look and if you can,confirm if he is from the manchesters?

Many thanks

Dave... its not the Manchesters. I'd say the Gloucesters.

When I first looked at it, looks like sphinx over scroll...... Lincolnshire Regiment.

Difficult to say either way, but the size looks Gloster-ish, and the coloured patch on the sleeve migth be the system used by the 61st Division, possibly.

What is he doing, BTW? Wrong uniform entirely for a Highland Fling, I'd have thought.

The architecture is interesting ... I'm far from expert on this ... East Anglia?

From the look of the buildings I would say North Norfolk, maybe billeted for Coatal Defences (SO probably territiorial)

Just a Guess

Any chance of close uou of the left sleeve and cap insignia. (poss sphinx on the badge I'd say).

Is he doing some sort of Irish Jig!
