Possible 5th Seaforth Piper but doubtful.

Hi all,

 

This photo has me stumped. Despite the unique looking 5th looking capbadge, is he a 5th Seaforth Piper after all?

The more I look at it, the more doubtful I've become. 

 

Any help?

Indeed. Hence why I posted it here as we’re trying to figure this enigma out.

Hello

The sporran badge looks distinctly like Seaforths, is that a Canadian maple leaf collar badge?

Definitely a puzzler.....As noted previously, it definitely looks like a Seaforth sporran cantle and possibly a Maple Leaf collar badge.  The belt buckle appears to be a Star within a circlet.  The plaid brooch looks close to a Black Watch design.  Further, the cap badge resembles the South African Brigade design.  The doublet is ill fitting with the sleeves much too short.  I would go with a civilian piper.
