A ha -  there are three pictures of him.  The first and last have him Jodphurs.  The middle one is the only dated and is 16 Oct 16 at Grantham with his MGC hat one (seated so can’t see his trousers).  He was the Coy transport Sgt in France and when was awarded his DCM.

 

So even if the first photo was taken in the first week or three of his time with the MGC (joined MGC around 23 Sept 16)   its difficult to see them sending him straight to a mounted sub unit and giving him the trousers  before we next a see him as a LCpl on the 16 Oct.  

 

Leans towards a horsy TF unit perhaps.
