While researching my family history on Ancestry I came across this picture

Please can anyone tell me what regiment it is

He is a Lance Corporal and on the lower left arm he has two wound stripes. With regard to his cap badge, perhaps forum pal @FROGSMILE could assist.

Welcome to the forum. The badge is South Staffordshire.

I think North Staffordshire in this case Michelle, I can see a Prince of Wales feathers on top.

He has two vertical wound stripes on his left lower sleeve (one for each occasion that he received wound[s]) and from his dress was almost certainly home on leave at the time of the photograph.

You’re right. I was squinting at my phone with a very dodgy wifi connection!

Understood.  Phones are always limiting for our eyesight!
