Got this photo and nothing else at all.

Could any uniform experts tell me anything else other than rank and regiment (the boots or gaiters look unusual?)

Is he definitely British?

There is nothing on his uniform to suggest he is in a Canadian unit.  He wears the standard MGC collar badges and the trench boots are a personal choice when in the field and not ‘parading with troops’.  The jacket has been modified for field use slightly by the addition of leather edging to reinforce the cuffs.

I was hoping you might be along Frogsmile (but not that quickly!)

Thanks.
