No stripes, good-conduct badges or overseas service stripes evident.  New looking uniform not the 1914 economy tunic. Swagger stick to look good while walking out.  No medal ribbons suggests more pre-war or early war than post war.

I feel I have found his MIC.

Definitely Royal Sussex most likely a service battalion as opposed to a regular battalion, as he’s wearing a leather 14 pattern belt.

This was authorised in September 14 but generally didn’t come into service until 1915 so he’s dated at 1915 or later 

regards
