Hello all

I would appreciate any information concerning the uniform and badges in the attached photograph, please.

The only thing I think I know is that the badge on the left hand sleeve is that of a loader.

Any information is appreciated, thank you.

Not sure this is quite the exact match for the period of the original, hence a few slight differences, but...

Yes RFA and wearing the so-called regimental 'girdle' that was adopted by the RFA and ASC after the 2nd Boer War, replacing the white buff leather belt worn previously.  Note that the shoulder cords were re-adopted after a spell when cloth straps were used to show the regional area for the unit concerned.
