Same soldier two different regiments?

Hi all,

Whilst sorting through some old family photos, for an earlier post, came across these of my grandmother's uncle, Charles Mace; father of the boys in my signature.

The second one is definately WW1; 118 Company, Royal Engineers.

Well, that's what's written on the reverse of the photo, otherwise I wouldn't have any idea. :wacko: LOL

As for the first photo - not a clue :o:o

Suggestions/ideas, etc. very, very welcomed.

Again, many thanks in advance.

Kindest regards,

Carol

A fine looking gentleman, could this be him

Medal card of Mace, Charles Edward

Corps Regiment No Rank

Royal Engineers 55747 Company Serjeant Major

Hi Carol

In the top photo the cap badge looks like either the Gloucestershire or Lincolnshire Regt, the gent also appears to be wearing a territorial force (efficiency) long service medal wich was instigated in 1908 not much to go on but it shouldnt take long to work through the TFEM medal roll!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave.
