My Punt here.

Could be 80th. I would go C1880-81 Tunics home service (7 button), yellow / white cuff. Medals look to be IGS & South Africa, not unusual to have IGS (perak) clasp & South Africa in combi ( I have a set). Cant see it being later with the Egypt medal, no Khedive star.

Only speculation

I have been asked in a polite way put them out of their misery.

Quote :
"They are the Colours of the 58th (Rutlandshire) Regiment of Foot, taken in 1881 after the 1st Anglo-Boer War. By this time the regiment had become the 2nd Battalion of the Northamptonshire Regiment. Hence the white 'jampot' facings of a non-Royal English or Welsh regiment.

Three soldiers are Sgt. William Bridgstock, (left) Pte. C Godfrey, (right) both awarded the D.C.M. for their actions at Laing's Nek in saving the Colours, & Pte. James Osborne, V.C. (centre) awarded for his actions at Wesselstroom.
