Hi

Does anyone have any clues as to what uniform this is, I presume it is armed forces and I believe the man was born in 1886.

Any help would be appreciated

Kind regards

Corcam

I can't find a connection with any of those although I have found someone in a neighbouring village who was in the 43rd foot so that could be it. He came from Hadstock in Essex and I think from what you have said he was born in 1858 (his nephew had the same name which is why there is confusion). He was my great grandmothers brother.

Thanks for your help

Corcam,

A lovely photo and a rarity as it's pre-1881. Just love to see stuff like this.
