Hi, I need help with identifying the regiment of this man. From the cap badge, could it be the Lancashire Fusiliers?

That is an LF cap badge.

From what I can tell, Regulars, Service Battalions and Territorials all used the same badge.

From his belt, I'd say he was in a service battalion but others will have more forensic knowledge than myself.

I concur with Alan24, the LF badge is clear and the 1914 leather equipment and rifle sling make a war-raised ‘service battalion’ from Kitchener’s New Armies likely.  It’s also possible to make out the shoulder titles.
