Max,

This is going to be difficult without any distinguishing badges showing. Unless someone is able to blow up a button and see if they can get anything from it.

The head dress is the sun helmet issued to all troops in hot climates. You can see them in photos taken at Gallipoli and in the Middle East during the Great War and after.

Do you have a name for the man in the photo? If so, one of the Forum's super sleuths is sure to be able to track him down and find out his unit.

Regards

Chris

Could You please try & scan the Photo at a Higher Resolution? (as High as You can)

I tried to Enlarge the Image, but it is to Blurred, becuase the resolution is too Low!

The limit for the size of images on the forum is just 100Kb.

As the chap is wearing a wrist watch I would venture to suggest post WW1.
